How do you use voice annotation in PowerPoint?

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

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?

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?

You can try:

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