The shape of what you say

With the return of the speaking season, I am regularly producing again in my favorite application, Keynote.  I’ve written extensively about Keynote elsewhere, but today I want to talk about one specific feature: rehearsing a slideshow.

To appreciate this feature go ahead and fire up Keynote - open a recent presentation. Don’t have one? Here you go:
DEMO DECK -- The Shape of What You Say.key 2.68 MB

Select Play > Rehearse Slideshow.

When selected, you enter a mode where you see:

  • The current slide and its slide number
  • The following slide and its slide number
  • The current time
  • Your speaker notes… maybe.
