In the last part of this Presentation Management series of posts, we looked at how it could be beneficial to create short and memorable presentations to allow audiences to recollect your content better. In this part, we look at how stories for business presentations are not exactly like stories in a novel or even an autobiography. They are so much more visual.

Do you have a Word document, or have you received a Word document from someone, and now you need to create a PowerPoint presentation based on the content from the Word document?

Of course, you can copy as paste content as needed, or you could create a new PowerPoint presentation while continuously referring to the Word document, but what if there was a feature that lets you achieve this task with just a few clicks? Would such a feature be of interest to you?

There is indeed such a feature that Microsoft has introduced in Word and PowerPoint versions for the Web. Yes, these are the browser-based versions that you can access via your OneDrive or SharePoint accounts. In this quick video walkthrough, we are using OneDrive.

If you came straight to this post, we have already covered getting started with the Synology DS920+ NAS device. Additionally, we have also installed the DSM operating system on the NAS. Now it’s time to set up the storage pool, a collection of two or more drives to store data.

You must make sure that you are signing in as the administrator of the NAS device. This is important if you have multiple accounts set up on the NAS. However, if you have just one account set up, that’s typically already an administrator account. Also, do note that in our case, this is a new Synology DS920+ NAS device, and no storage pool has been set up until now.

Once you log into the Synology DS920+, you’ll access the Main Menu button on the top-left of your screen, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1, below.

Introduction

A picture is said to be worth a thousand words, but an effective video can possibly be worth a thousand pictures. Let’s look at some scenarios. What if you were stuck with an error with a software program and wanted to show support folks what causes the error? Or what if you want to explain to a client how they can log into a portal and access the information they need. Yes, these scenarios can be explained with words, but a small video will ensure that the recipient understands what exactly needs to be done. Yes, videos can help you clearly express your points to others who matter.

However, what if you want to record some other onscreen activity such as a PowerPoint presentation, along with both the narration delivered by the speaker and also a video of the speaker recorded via a webcam? Plus, what if you want to also record non-PowerPoint activity alongside such as a demo in another program, or even some real-time screen drawing or annotations? Now, let’s take this even more further; what if you want to do some basic editing in the resultant recording, like removing some unwanted parts? What if you could achieve all these results with just one program? Our review product, DemoCreator can fulfill all these requirements. How does it fare? Let’s find out.
