The PowerPoint Presenter Coach feature was first introduced in PowerPoint for the web version, and both students and professionals have used it to become more confident presenters.
You can now use this feature across all platforms, including the web, Windows, Mac, Android and iOS, whenever and wherever you need it, on the go, or at home.
Presenter Coach leverages artificial intelligence to help anyone. Presentation skills are more important than ever, especially in this hybrid work and learning environment, with more meetings and presentations than ever before.
Presenter Coach listens to you as you practice your presentation aloud and analyzes what you’re saying, and can warn you if you speak too fast or slow or use filler words, along with poor grammar and use of sensitive phrases.
Presenter Coach users receive at the end of each exercise a summary report highlighting the main parts of the feedback to help them become better and more confident presenters.
In addition to expanding Presenter Coach’s availability, the company is also expanding the types of comment provided by this feature.
The company announced three new ways the feature can try to improve your presentations, including body language, repetitive language, and pronunciation.
- body language: It is important to ensure that the audience has a clear view of your face, and that you maintain your gaze towards your audience, while leaving an appropriate distance between you and the camera, and this feature is triggered with comments in the summary report about the extent to which your audience can see you, if you are too far or too close to The camera, and make sure you are facing the camera.
- Frequent language: Presenter Coach helps you identify frequent words and phrases to avoid overuse. In addition to listing these words and phrases, the feature provides a synonym list so you can switch them.
- Pronunciation: Presenter Coach can advise you on the correct pronunciation of the words you are speaking during the exercise, and when the feature realizes that you may have misspelled a word, it displays the word and provides an experiment that helps you practice pronouncing the word correctly, and you can listen to the recorded word pronunciation guide multiple times.
