Have you ever found yourself in a position where you wanted your words to be presented and displayed on-screen as Captionsduring a PowerPointPresentation? Have you ever wanted them to be displayed in the same Languagethat we are speaking, or for the Subtitlesto be translated into another Language? This is where PowerPoint365 shows up. This feature helps individuals in the audience that may have hearing problems or that are more familiar with another Language. By using this feature, we can change the Position, Size, Color and other Options for the Appearance of the Captions and Subtitles depending on what we need. All you need to do is to continue reading this post to see how this exciting new feature works.
We must select the Slide Show tab and then from the right area of the ribbon, we locate the area named Captions & Subtitles as shown below.
In the Captions & Subtitles area, we have the following two commands available and which are the following:
Always Use Subtitles: By activating the check box at the left of the command, we will Always Show Live Captions Or Subtitles In Slide Show While Presenting To An Audience, Powered By Microsoft Speech Services.
Subtitle Settings: By selecting this command a drop-down menu will appear where we can Choose The Settings For Live Captions Or Subtitles, Including Language, Microphone, Position, And Style.
In the next image I have selected the command SubtitleSettings, where it is separated by the following Submenus which are the following:
Spoken Language: We can select which Language will be Spoken.
Subtitle Language: We can select which Language will be displayed as Subtitle.
Microphone: We can select which Microphone will be used.
Position of Subtitles: We can select the Position of the Subtitles from:
More Settings (Windows)
In the next image I have selected the MoreSettings (Windows) command from the drop-down menu of the SubtitleSettings command, where then the ControlPanel of the WindowsSettings dialog box appears. The Ease Of Access category appears where the ClosedCaptions subcategory is activated. In this category we can make many more adjustments concerning the Subtitles.
In the next image I have started the SlideShow, and then I have started Narrating. We can see the Subtitles that appear while narrating. The Language of the SpokenSubtitle is English, and the DisplayLanguage of the Subtitle is English again, and the Position is at the TopOverlaid.
An exciting new feature, where many people will be benefited from.. Just keep in mind, that we will need a microphone connected to the device running PowerPoint and an Internet Connection.
