Bring your slides to life… with voice

In my explorations on the web to find and experience web 2.0 applications, I found HelloSlide.com, which allows you to upload presentations (as do SlideShare.net, scribd.com and Prezi.com).

The novelty is that it integrates voice up to 20 languages.

It allows you to upload a presentation, type the speech (instead of recording it), and play it using a synthesized (but quite realistic) voice. Also, you can effortlessly make your talks available in multiple languages.

Currently the service is available FREE for up to 50 presentations. Additional features are available in their premium services, but the free version is definitely enough to give you an idea what it’s all about. Simply upload your presentation (as a .PDF), add your text and press translate.

Look at the 2 presentations I uploaded (License: CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike , You can use freely)

    This is really incredible audio integrity to powerpoint presentation for clarification and explanation. The voiceover i used to make was so artifical voice, but this one heard as a real person vioce record. It’s awesome. <thanks Jaime for suggesting, as i was thinking to produce some contents in ppt, only text. A question, is it possible to get it and embed to platforms, like moodle? I hope not only the link.

    Cheers,

    HelloSlide is a great discovery, Jaime! I’ve never seen anything quite like it.

    I can imagine that World Language teachers and their students would find this tool extremely helpful.

    As for my literature classes, I’d see this tool as a simple option for creating an audio slide show in response to a book. Creators could simply upload the images they design and type in their narration.

    Thanks so much for sharing this valuable variation on the SlideShare theme.
