Before you hit record, consider the following steps to ensure your presentation is organized and the narration matches the visual aids.
- Make a plan. Outline a storyboard that organizes the content you’d like to cover.
- Develop slides. Create slides with brief overviews of the content to be discussed.
- Prepare a script. Write the audio content before recording. This will reduce presentation error and ensure all planned topics are included. Also, it is important to note that in order to comply with ADA regulations, all recordings must have captions. Any videos that do not have captions cannot be released to the national market.
- Confirm the slides are approved. Please share your slides with your project editor before recording. Images must come from pre-approved sources such as the public domain, hold a creative commons license, or be royalty-free. Any third-party content must be cleared for use by the Cognella licensing team.
Once your slides and script are prepared and approved, you are ready to begin recording.
