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.

How to customize your layout

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

How to reference speaker notes

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

How to 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 to backward. You can also view your slides in a grid and jump to a new slide.

There are two ways to use speaker view

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

  2. A single screen: When you present on a single screen or through a video call, you can share only the window your presentation is open in.

How to 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 the ← button at the top left-hand corner and you will be taken back to the editor.

💡 Videos set to autoplay with 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.
