Microsoft today announced that they updating Office Mix with Slide Notes and Closed Captioning.
When you click the MIX tab in the PowerPoint ribbon, and then click the Record button, the recording view will open and the Slide Notes translucent text box is displayed at the top of your screen. Think of Slide Notes as a teleprompter for recording a mix—so you can focus on connecting with your audience, rather than worrying about memorizing your delivery. Your presentation will have smoother transitions, and you’ll record in fewer attempts.
With closed captioning, you now have the ability to personalize your Office Mix experience to make it easier to see, hear, and use. Beyond supporting those who are hearing-impaired, closed captioning can supplement audio that is hard to understand. Additionally, captions can be used as a tool for those learning to read or by individuals who simply like to read a transcript along with the presentation. To add closed captioning to a mix, ensure you check the box to create a video when uploading a mix. Then, download the video and utilize a third-party service to create the TTML file from your video.
