PowerPoint Presenter Coach is Now Available

Posted on March 17, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft 365 with 3 Comments

Microsoft announced the general availability of PowerPoint Presenter Coach across all supported platforms: Web, Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.

“Presenter Coach leverages AI to help anyone—professionals, students, and even those who just want to practice a speech for a wedding or graduation,” Microsoft’s Derek Johnson announced. “Especially in this hybrid work and learning environment, presentation skills are more important than ever, with more meetings and presentations than ever before. Presenter Coach provides users with feedback on their pace, use of monotone pitch, use of filler words, poor grammar, lack of originality, use of sensitive phrases, and more while they rehearse their presentations. At the end of each rehearsal, Presenter Coach users receive a Summary Report highlighting the key pieces of feedback to help them become even better, more confident presenters.”

In addition to making PowerPoint Presenter Coach generally available, Microsoft has also added three new critiques—body language, repetitive language, and pronunciation—available too, helping presenters hone their work even further. These critiques are available in preview on the web only for now.

    Is Presenter Coach now generally available "across all supported platforms: Web, Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android" (first sentence) or is it "available in preview on the web only for now" (last sentence)?
