Using PowerPoint Live

PowerPoint live is an easy to use feature of your Microsoft 365 account that is more inclusive than using your typical slideshow button. ​Nothing special is needed! You can use PPT Live by logging into your ATC Microsoft account ONLINE and clicking the PPT button. ​

What is Powerpoint live?

With a computer or additional microphone (Bluetooth or corded), the PowerPoint Live software picks up your voice and gives you closed captioning [almost] instantly in any language the viewer chooses.​

If you have your PPTs set up for auto-save on OneDrive, you can find them in your account.​ ​  If your PPTs are located on your device, simply sign into your OneDrive and upload. Make sure they're named correctly so you can find them easily!​

Where can I find my powerpoints?

Note: You must have internet access to use PPT Live. Without WIFI, you will have to present from your downloaded file without closed captioning.​

Before you try out PowerPoint Live in front of an audience, practice solo or with a colleague to understand the ins and outs of using the feature.​

Practice practice practice!

Remember to have fun!
