Digital presentation involves producing a PowerPoint presentation with audio and visual components. You are required to embed the audio into each slide to create a slideshow. It is recommended that you first view a YouTube video that shows how to do a simple voice over on a power point presentation. The address is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uk4CU7uobM. Check your completed presentation on another computer before submitting it to ensure that the sound is embedded into each slide and not just linked to it. If it is not correctly embedded, the sound will only work on your computer and not on another one. Ensure that your selected font can be easily read by the audience. Slides should not have too much information, your audio must be expanding on that information; prompts and dot points are recommended.
