All you require are a computer with an internet connection, a headset with microphone and Microsoft PowerPoint (2007/2010) on Windows. It is also good to find a quiet place to minimise background noise, and to schedule enough time to create the Breeze presentation.

Mac Alternatives

Mac users are often forgotten. At CIT we try to ensure cross-platform availability for the services we provide. In cases where the products or services we offer are not Mac-compatible, here is where you can find alternatives. Please contact us if you are face other Mac compatibility issues with CIT's services.


Alternatives to Breeze DIY Courseware

Breeze enables the creation and publishing of standalone audio-enhanced presentations. Unfortunately, Adobe only develops this product for Windows. Here are a few alternatives to Breeze for Mac users.

Audio narration within presentation software

If you have Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac or Apple Keynote '09 (part of iWork '09), you can add audio narration to your presentation slides.

Keynote '09: Page 101-102 of the Keynote '09 User Guide [pdf]

Office 2008 for Mac: Record Narration

Publication options for both vary. Both Keynote and Office allow exporting of presentations as QuickTime movies and other formats. Do note that the default options may result in unwieldy file sizes.

Screen Recording

Mac users can now make screen recordings with Camtasia Relay or Ink2Go. These are provided by CIT.

A basic and free screen recording alternative for Macs is Jing.

More advanced (but commercial) options include ScreenFlow, Snapz Pro X, iShowU and ProfCast. Please approach your respective Faculty IT Units and follow NUS procurement procedures to obtain these software.
