Microsoft adds an Artificial Intelligence wizard to PowerPoint to improve the presentation of users. The new feature, called the Presenter Coach, will be displayed during a sample of PowerPoint slides and will provide feedback on your presentation skills by listening to audio from your computer's microphone. Presenter Coach will come up with tips on tempo and filler words so you do not mumble or stammer and help moderators better understand their language, with suggestions like policeman instead of policeman.
If you swear During a presentation, you'll see that you're not using bad words, and even culturally insensitive phrases will be highlighted or you'll be warned if you just read the slides lazily. PowerPoint then generates a report with metrics on how well you finished your rehearsal. Microsoft adds this feature because it has "received feedback from teachers, students, and customers that attendees are looking for an easy way to practice their presentations to improve their public speaking skills."
Presentations are nerve-wracking for many, but this new Presenter Coach only appears during a trial session. This means that pop-ups will not further upset you if you give tips on your speech skills during a real PowerPoint presentation. Microsoft plans to add this new feature to PowerPoint in the summer in PowerPoint. Later, it will also be available in PowerPoint on mobile devices and on desktops.
In addition to Presenter Coach, Microsoft also enhances the appropriate design tool making your presentations a lot less boring. Designer now suggests themes for blank PowerPoint presentations and even integrates with existing brand templates in a company. Microsoft also uses Microsoft Research's Perspective Engine, which detects large numbers in 652,232 km² slides and divides them into "about the size of Texas" to make them easier to understand.
