Create speaker notes

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

On your slides, include only essential points, to keep the information simple and easy to scan. Reserve the finer details for your speaker notes. You’ll engage with your audience as you present this information, and they won’t have to read a crowded slide. When you present, you can print your notes in a notes pages format and refer to them, or use PowerPoint’s Presenter view. Presenter view lets you see the slide and your notes on your laptop, while, on the projector, your audience sees only the slide.
