  • Enough free space so Zora can move around

  • A PowerPoint presentation with notes

The application

Zora will inform you that the application has started. Depending on the Skip intro setting, Zora will also give a small introduction on how the application works.

Zora will inform you when she is ready to connect to a PowerPoint presentation, at that point you can use the Zora PowerPoint Reader plugin to connect to Zora.

Once the plugin is connected you can test the connection or start the presentation.

When a slide is shown, the plugin sends the notes to Zora and Zora will say it out loud. Before Zora will say the notes, she will first go to het talking position.

In case Zora doesn’t talk for 2 minutes, she will go to her standby position.
