How Do I Eliminate the Audible Clicks In a Recorded Keynote?

Hi Gary. I’m adding narration to some Keynote slideshows and putting them up on YouTube for my students to watch. Can I get rid of the clicks as I advance the slides? Also – what would be the difference between a narrated show and just making a screen recording of me narrating?

Thanks, Ted

    Do you mean when your mic picks up the click of the mouse or key on the keyboard?

    Do you have an external mic? Getting the mic away from your mouse/trackpad/keyboard and closer to your mouth will help. Or, find a way to advance slides silently, like tapping your trackpad instead of clicking it.

    If you just can’t do any of those, then you can always take the video into iMovie and edit the audio You’d just need to drop the volume out for each click. That will be a lot of work.

    With a screen recording, you have to do the whole thing in one go. Mess up? Start again. With narration in Keynote you can pause and resume and go back a slide, etc. Plus, quality may be better with an export from Keynote as opposed to grabbing the pixels on the display for each frame.

    I’m using the built-in mic on my MacBook Pro. I think the tapping suggestion should work. Thanks.
