Adobe Presenter is a plug-in for the Windows version of Powerpoint that allows you to create slideshow presentations with audio narration. It makes it easy to record audio narration, to edit your audio, and even to time the audio to match animations on your slides.
The Adobe Connect Server has been upgraded to version 9. The version can no longer publish to the server - you will need to update your plug-in.
The Adobe Presenter 9 plug-in is compatible with Windows 8 and earlier versions and with PowerPoint 2010 (and earlier) versions. It is compatible with 32 bit PowerPoint 2013 but not with 64 bit PowerPoint 2013 (as of May 2014 - this may change - for specs see : http://www.adobe.com/products/presenter/tech-specs.html
Although Adobe Presenter is a Windows only program, Adobe also has a Mac -only program Adobe Presenter Video Express (requires Mac OS 10.8 and above). This is free to publish with a watermark - otherwise $1.99 to publish each presentation.
