Petach Tikva, Israel (PRWEB) December 5, 2006
Tuval Software Industries has announced the launch of Notes-Over™, an innovative software application that creates and manages formatted PowerPoint® speaker notes that can be linked with slide contents for more effective presentations. Notes-Over, part of Tuval's Speech-Over Studio™ suite, can also help preserve expert knowledge in enterprise organizations.
Good speaker notes are the key to a good presentation and, some say, as important as the slides. They help the presenter organize his thoughts, make sure the important points are covered, integrate the slide visuals into the talk -- and assist with the slide show.
Audiences appreciate speaker notes that ensure that the presentation is clear and coherent, and they can take notes handouts to share with colleagues.
Speaker notes can be even more important in an organization to capture and preserve valuable expert knowledge. Expert knowledge emerging in enterprise projects is often transmitted to colleagues in presentations. Speaker notes are a natural repository for the expert presentation content, and they are easily preserved in notes handouts and distributed with the slides to promote project collaboration.
Unfortunately, most people work under a deadline, and, after preparing the slides, there is often too little time left to write good speaker notes.
There is clearly a need for specialized productivity software for creating and managing speaker notes.
Tuval Software Industries' Notes-Over provides a solution: a PowerPoint add-in that creates and manages formatted speaker notes that can be linked with slide elements. The note "sticks" to the slide element, so that when you rearrange or add bullet text items on the slide, the notes are automatically reordered. Notes attached to slide graphics or unattached notes are reordered by up/down arrow controls. A full-featured notes editor lets you dictate notes and cut and paste them between elements. The notes appear on the PowerPoint notes pane and can be distributed as handouts and saved with the presentation.
Notes-Over has something for everyone.
For presenters, lecturers, and experts:
- Dictate the speaker notes and Notes-Over turns them into text.
- Notes Editor: Link notes to individual slide elements, cut and paste notes between elements and reorder them.
- Lecture from ordered, easy-to-follow speaker notes that highlight key ideas with rich text formatting.
For audience, participants, and viewers:
- Deliver clear and coherent presentations with well-organized speaker notes that are coordinated with slide contents
- Clarify and illustrate complex topics step by step with ordered speaker notes that refer to individual slide visuals
- Document presentation content for handouts.
For organizations, enterprise projects, and corporations:
- Document and preserve expert presentation content for distributed and archived presentations and for project collaboration.
Integration with Other Tuval Products
Notes-Over is available as a stand-alone application, or integrated with Tuval's Record-Over™ or Speech-Over™ products. The integrated products can display the speaker notes as subtitles in the slide show and can convert them into a coordinated voice narration for the slide show.
