Speaker Coach Helps You Improve Your Presentations

This article applies to: Microsoft Teams

Speaker Coach can help you to become a better speaker by providing private feedback on your pacing, pitch, use of filler words, informal speech, euphemisms, and inclusiveness. It also detects when you're being overly wordy or are just reading slide text. After each meeting or presentation, you receive a report only available to you that includes statistics and suggestions for improvement.

Sample what Speaker Coach is like by loading a presentation into PowerPoint Live. Microsoft shows how to prepare in private in Rehearse your slide show with Speaker Coach. If you find it helpful, you can use Speaker Coach in your PowerPoint presentations that have an audience.

You can also turn on Speaker Coach in any scheduled Teams meeting you attend (no Meet Now or channel Teams meetings). Just click ... (more options) in a scheduled Teams meeting and select Turn On Speaker Coach. After the meeting, your private report will be delivered to you and viewable only by you. You can even choose to automatically receive feedback on your delivery for all meetings you attend.
