How to Print with Speaker’s Notes in Powerpoint 2013

Even if you have been working on a Powerpoint presentation for a very long time and know it by heart, it can be easy to forget something when you add in the pressure of public speaking. So it’s a good idea to use the speaker’s notes section that is available at the bottom of each slide and add some talking points that you want to make sure to cover as you present.

If you are going to print out a copy of your presentation so that you can follow along as you give the presentation, then it is helpful to include your speaker’s notes on the printed slide. Our guide below will show you the setting that you need to change on the Powerpoint 2013 print menu so that you print the speaker’s notes with the slides.
