Rehearse and time the delivery of a presentation
PowerPoint helps you record and time a presentation before you present it to an audience.
Tip: For the most powerful rehearsal experience consider opening your presentation in PowerPoint for the web and using Presenter Coach. For more information see: Rehearse your slide show with Presenter Coach.
