How can I record good quality sound files of my voice to embed in PowerPoint presentations? I know how to embed the file, and can follow simple instructions to use various recording functions on a PC. But, how do I make them sound good and clear and not irritating or difficult to listen to?
I don’t need to use music or anything else. I just want to narrate slides, like I do when presenting live. And I’m going to do each slide separately to get things right. For good or ill, I already have lots of information and experience on making good and enjoyable presentations - people tell me they like them.
What sort of a microphone should I buy? How far away do I hold it? What sort of room should I be in? Can I just use the sound recording function in Windows? What else should I know or try or avoid?
For whatever it matters, I tend to make my “S” sounds whistle a bit, which I can’t hear myself but is very obvious to me in recordings. Anything I can do to make that less annoying rather than more would be a plus.
