MS PowerPoint: You can now practice presentation almost anywhere
With the help of Microsoft PowerPoint, you can improve your presentation skills almost anywhere. Previously, Microsoft’s Presenter Coach, which helps you practice presentations, had been available on the web version of PowerPoint, but now it’s finally coming to the desktop and mobile versions of the app. According to Microsoft, this feature of practising will now be available on iMac, Windows, iOS, Android. PowerPoint for the web helps censors, but the version for Windows doesn’t.
PowerPoint’s Presenter Coach listens to you while you practice a presentation out loud anywhere and at anytime. The presenter analyzes what you’re saying and can warn you if you’re talking too fast or too slow. If you try it out on both PowerPoint for Windows and iOS, it will work pretty well. MS PowerPoint does pretty much good as Microsoft says it should. At the end it gives you a report, telling what you need to be improved. From the privacy point of view, it is worth nothing then tried it in airplane mode; it told that it had to connect to the internet to use the feature of coaching.
Along with the availability of Windows, iOS, Android, there are also some new ways that the feature can try to make your presentation better.
- The new feature can look at your body language that how close you are to the camera, whether you’re making eye contact or not.
- It can also warn you if you’re repeating words or saying them wrong.
- And of course, it still tells you not to swear in your presentation.
When tried, the feature didn’t show up in the Mac version of the app, but it was available for iOS. Microsoft PowerPoint was not immediately available for the comments.
