How You Can Start Practice For Your Presentations With The PowerPoint’s Presenter Coach

Microsoft PowerPoint now have what we call a Presenter Coach to let you rehearse your presentations before you can go to the audience. This coach gives you a very detailed report telling you how well you did while rehearsing and also suggesting areas you are to improve. Here’s how you can use it.


How The Presenter Coach Can Help You With Your Presentations

You have to take the Presenter Coach that you have in your PowerPoint as a trusted friend who listens to you when you practice your performing presentations. This coach gives you reviews of your entire presentation and also creates a report that details your performance.

For example, it will give you a grade for you to know how fast you speak and how much you use filler words like the “um” and “ah.” It will also give you information of words you might want to avoid and will encourage you not to simply read the words on your slides aloud. 


What You’ll Need

To start using this Presenter Coach in PowerPoint, you must have:

1. A Microsoft account or a Microsoft 365 work or school account

2. A working internet connection

3. A microphone (so that PowerPoint can listen to whatever you’re saying)

Note Also: The Presenter Coach only works with the use of English language in PowerPoint. Other languages are not yet supported by it as of the time of this article.
