How To Add Voice Over In Canva

Canva has become a popular tool for creating stunning visual content, from social media posts to presentations, posters, and more. Recently, Canva added a new feature that allows users to add a voice over to their presentations. This is a useful feature for creating engaging content, especially for online courses, business presentations, or personal videos. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of adding a voice over in Canva.

Step 1: Open your Canva Presentation

Start by opening the presentation you want to add a voice over to. If you haven’t created a presentation yet, you can easily create one by clicking on the “Create a design” button on the Canva home page and selecting “Presentation” from the options.

Step 2: Add a Voice Over

Once you have your presentation open, click on the slide where you want to add the voice over. Then, click on the three dots at the top right corner of the page to open a dropdown menu and select the “Voiceover” option.

Step 3: Record Your Voice Over

When you click on the “Voiceover” option, a new window will open. This is where you can record your voice over. Click on the red “Record” button to start recording. Make sure your microphone is working properly before you start. When you are done recording, click on the “Stop” button. You can listen to your recording by clicking on the “Play” button.

Step 4: Edit Your Voice Over

After recording your voice over, you can also edit it. Click on the “Trim” button to cut out parts of the recording you don’t want to include in your voice over. Adjust the start and end points of your recording by dragging the blue handles on the timeline.

Step 5: Add the Voice Over to Your Slide

Once you are satisfied with your recording, click on the “Add” button to add the voice over to your slide. You can adjust the volume of your voice over by clicking on the volume icon in the top right corner of the slide. To delete the voice over, click on the trash can icon.
