Part 12. Running a Presentation > Rehearsing a Presentation

Rehearsing a Presentation

Click the Slide Sorter View button.

Click the Rehearse Timings button on the Formatting toolbar.

PowerPoint switches to Slide Show mode, displaying the first slide and the Rehearsal toolbar, and starts a timer.

Rehearse what you want to say while this slide is displayed. When you are ready to advance to the next slide, click the Next button on the Rehearsal toolbar.

INTRODUCTION

You can use PowerPoint's Rehearsal feature to time exactly how long each slide is displayed during the course of the show. The Rehearsal feature records the timings and displays them along with the slides in Slide Sorter view mode.


TIP

Slide Timing

When setting up timings for each slide, be sure to allow enough time for the audience to read everything on the slide, as well as view any animation or multimedia clips.


TIP

Pausing the Rehearsal

If you need to pause your slide show during rehearsal, click the Pause button on the Rehearsal toolbar.


Repeat step 4 for each slide in the presentation.

When the slide show is finished, click Yes to record the timings.

PowerPoint displays the timings beneath each slide.

To view or change the timings, click the Transition button to open the Slide Transition Task pane and view the Advance Slide settings.
