When you're getting ready to present, you want to feel prepared. Speaker view helps you focus on delivery by showing your speaker notes and slides in one place. Enter the player by clicking on the Play button at the top right of your editor.

Then click Speaker view in the bottom right of the player.

Customize your layout

Set up the perfect speaker view for your needs: You can choose to show or hide the current slide, next slide, slide navigator, and speaker notes.

Reference speaker notes

Your speaker notes will appear in the top left of the screen in speaker view, next to the current or next slide. This will make it easier to scan your notes while presenting.

Jump to slides

If you need to jump ahead, it's easy. Hover over the slideline or any slide in the navigator to move forward or backward. You can also view your slides in a grid and jump to a new slide — click the upward arrow along the top of the slide navigator to expand to grid view.

There are two ways to use speaker view

  1. Across multiple displays: Use one display for the player in full-screen, and another display to control your presentation in speaker view and see which slide is coming up next.

  2. On a single display: When you present on a single screen or through a video call, you can choose to show the audience only the window your player is open in.

Navigate your presentation

You can choose your preferred way of controlling the presentation.

  • To move forward: click .

  • To move backward: click .

  • To exit: press Esc or simply close the window and you’ll be taken back to the editor.

💡 Videos set to autoplay will start playing once they're shown on the current slide. If your slide features any other type of video, you’ll need to click the play button in the player — not in speaker view — to play the video for your audience.
