I heard there was a feature to speak into Power Point to make your voice part of the presentation.

Is this possible?

How?

If so, what tricks or techniques are most useful?  Are there editing techniques when I make a mistake speaking?  Can I record it in Audacity, for example, then import the finished audio?  What formats does it support?

Thanks,

You can record narration with your presentation: http://www.indezine.com/products/powerpoint/ppnarration.html
You can record your narration as separate files and add them as sound files

Or you can use a third party package such as
www.camtasia.com or www.articulate.com

Great! Thanks.

Would you know how I can record my desktop as I run my software demo, and also have similiar audio (with edit) capabilities?

I tried CamStudio but found it stopped working correctly.  Canyou suggest any other free program that can record my desktop so I can create a demo as a movie?

thanks,

You can try:

But I recommend Camtasia.  Especially if you have to do this very often.  There's special pricing for Educational uses.
