PPTools Narrator

PPTools Narrator is an add-in that helps you to produce narrated PowerPoint presentations with high-quality sound.

How does it work?

Take a moment to download and read the Narrator Help file (PDF format) to learn more about how it works and how you'll use it to save hours of time. The Narrator Help file is also included in the Narrator download (see below).


The current version of Narrator is a demonstration version that only adds sounds to a limited number of slides. Eventually it will be a commercial product but for now, it's in test mode. Try it and if it works for you, get in touch with us (use the CONTACT link on the left side of each page on this site) and let us know that you'd like an unrestricted copy of Narrator. We'll work with you.

Install Narrator

Narrator is compatible with 32- and 64-bit PowerPoint 2010 and up, but NOT with earlier versions of PowerPoint, and NOT with Mac PowerPoint in any version.
