Having problems recording a narration


L

Larry_from_LA

I am 100% certain that my microphone is working because when I test it
in the Microsoft Vista Control Panel/Sound/Recording the bars on the
right side turn green. Also when I use VoIP, I have no trouble with the
microphone.

I am using Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 and when I go to Slide Show/Record
Narration and the Record Narration box comes up.

I then go to Set Microphone Level and the Microphone Check box comes
up.

And when I read the requested statement – nothing happens. No green bar
appears as I speak into the microsphone. However if I unplug and then
replug the USB microphone connection into the USB port, I do at that
time see for a brief moment a green bar appear. I have also tried
several different USB ports on my computer and nothing happens.

I then still recorded onto my slides and saved the narration.

In View/Normal on each of the slides I see the audio icon.
However, when I try to double click on the audio icon or when I try to
play the slide show, there is no sound.

What might be happening?

Help please!

Detail steps for you recording a narration with powerpoint 2007:

Step1:Open your PowerPoint 2007 presentation.
Step2: In the normal view, choose the slide that you want to start the
recording on.
Step3:On the Slide show tab, in the Set Up group, click to Record
Narration.
Step5: To embed the narration, click Ok. To link the narration, select
the Link narrations in check box, click Browse, click a folder in the
list, and then click Select. To prevent possible problems, use the
same folder that your presentation is saved in.
Step 6: After your click OK. There will a Record Narration dialog box
appears.

If you selected a different slide to begin the recording on, Do one of
the following:
To start the narration on the first slide in the presentation, click
First Slide.
To start the narration on the currently selected slide, click Current
Slide.

Step7: In Slide Show view, speak the narrative text into the
microphone, and then click the slide to advance to the next slide.
Follow this process for each slide that you want to add narration to.

Note: To pause or resume the narration, right-click the slide, and
then on the shortcut menu (shortcut menu: A menu that shows a list of
commands relevant to a particular item. To display a shortcut menu,
right-click an item or press SHIFT+F10.), click either Pause Narration
or Resume Narration.

Step 8: Click the black Exit screen

Step9: The narration is automatically saved, and a message appears
asking if you want to save the timings for the presentation as well.
Do one of the following:
To save the timings, click Save. Your slides appear in Slide Sorter
view, with the slide timings shown below each slide.
To cancel the timings, click Don't Save. Then you can record the
timings separately.
Note: Voice narration takes precedence over other sounds, and only one
sound can play at a time in a presentation. As a result, other sounds
that are set to play automatically in a presentation are overridden by
a narration and will not play. However, sounds that are set to play
when clicked will still play when you click them.
