Application areas of SlideTalk
Video is a very efficient and popular way to share and consume information. However producing videos
may be a difficult and expensive process. Producing presentations for both internal and external communication
is on the other hand a very common and widespread activity in many companies and organizations.
SlideTalk makes it easy to create engaging talking videos by adding one simple step to the process of producing presentations.
With SlideTalk, if you know how to build a presentation, then you know how to build an engaging talking video.
Publishing presentations or slideshows as talking video may be interesting in several types of applications:
eLearning and instructional design: publish instructions, presentations, lessons and teaching material as talking videos
Tutorials and instructions: publish tutorials, commented screenshots and explain illustrated instructions in simple and easy-to-follow videos
Business presentations: presentations, product descriptions, price lists and other marketing materials may be effectively presented as talking video
Events and project documentation: picture shows from events, project information, meetings documentation, personal photo shows may be rendered as talking videos
In the classroom: add videos to your teaching, and let your students use SlideTalk for their projects to learn how to use picture and audio to illustrate and summarize a concept
The show-describe-share process
To understand more about how it works, let’s look at the three-steps process of SlideTalk called Show, Describe, Share. The process is illustrated in this two-minutes SlideTalk video:
Step 1 – Show: You start a SlideTalk video by uploading the slides or images that makes your presentation. Any type of image is valid: powerpoint slides, pictures, screenshots, scanned images…
Step 2 – Describe: You type a text description for each slide. This is the text that will be rendered to audio by text-to-speech. You can at any moment listen to the way the audio will sound in the final video, allowing you to fine tune the text to get your message through. You can also choose among a wide selection of high quality voices (by Acapela Group) including more than 70 voices in more than 20 languages.
Step 3 – Share: When the video is produced, it is immediately published on YouTube, ready to be shared with your audience, or made available for download to allow you to choose how and where to publish it.
What is SlideTalk and what need does it fill
SlideTalk is a cloud service for converting presentation (PowerPoint presentation or any collection of pictures) into talking presentations which are automatically published on YouTube or made available for download. The voiceover is created by using high-quality multilingual text-to-speech.
But why did we decide to create SlideTalk, and what need does it fill?
Far too many interesting, beautiful and meaningful presentations are created but never published online. The main reason is that publishing presentations on the web, together with your comments, is a tiresome, time-consuming and possibly expensive process. It requires equipment, time, logistic and possibly even hiring a professional speaker.
And even if you do that, once the presentation has been recorded, it is almost impossible to change it without restarting the recording from scratch. While SlideTalk makes editing an existing presentation as easy as to editing a text file or uploading a new image.
SlideTalk makes it easy to publish, edit and share PowerPoint presentations, business presentations, tutorials, eLearning material, education material and documentation of events as talking presentations, thanks to using high quality text-to-speech and image processing software to hide from you all boring details of creating a talking video, and leaving you free to focus on the creative and pedagogical tasks.
