SlideSpeech is a free web app which allows you to upload .ppt or .odp presentations and to automatically add a voice over, digitally generated, that will automatically read all of the speaker notes associated to each slide.
Alternatively you can record your own voice via SlideSpeech, one slide at a time or upload pre-made audio files to go with each slide.
Under the hood there is also a little interaction facility that makes it easy to add a question and a set of possible answers at the end of the presentation.
The final presentation is posted online at its own URL, can be embedded in any web site or blog and can also be downloaded as a video or .zip file. A simple stat facility keeps also track of how many view your presentation gets.
It is also possible to set whether other people will be allowed to edit and remix your presentation and whther or not you want search engines to index it.
Available on the web and on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
My comment: Excellent free tool with lots of good features under the hood. Unfortunately you only have three digital voices to choose from: two males (English, German) and one female. Great download options but .zip is not enabled yet and the video option requires some additional Quicktime plugin to work but it doesn't say which one. Overall promising but with a few rough corners still.
Free to use.
