Seventh: Tips and Tricks for Completing Your Talking Book
Save your talking book early on and then frequently as you work on it.
To view how it will show as a Slide Show, do one of the following:
Click on the Slide Show icon button in the lower left-hand corner of the workspace. This starts the slide show from the current slide.
Go to the Slide Show menu View Show. This starts the slide show from the first slide.
Press F5. This starts the slide show from the first slide.
When your talking book is complete you will need to save it as a PowerPoint Show so that it immediately opens in the Slide Show view. To do this:
Go to the File menu Save As.
Check to make sure the name of your talking book is correctly displayed in the File Name box.
Select PowerPoint Show from the Save As Type box.
Make sure you are saving the book into the folder you created earlier, then click on Save.
Use the PowerPoint Help menu! When you search in Help, remember to use terms that PowerPoint uses. For example, if you can’t remember how to animate something, search Help for “Custom Animation”. You can find terms to search by looking in the drop-down menus.
