Various file types, such as Word, PowerPoint, and PDF, can be imported into Ovation from your PC. The text, slides, and images from these imported files can then be used on various tools, including the Projector and Notecard.
Files can be imported into Ovation using our web portal (assuming the Default Sync Method is selected) or from within the application.
Sign in to the Ovation Web Portal
Select Media on the left side of the page
Select the Speech you wish to import speech items to, or create a new one. Note: The Quick Prompt speech cannot import speech items.
Select the Speech Items tab. You can import Slides, Text, or a Board image.
In this example, the user is importing slides. They can choose to import a Powerpoint file (.ppt, .pptx), or multiple image files (.jpg, .png).
Select 'Choose File' and select the file on your PC.
The file will be converted and imported to the Speech after selecting the upload icon. When it is done converting, you can launch Ovation and will find the images available in the Speech Items section of the Speech Settings menu.
Load or create a speech from the Manage menu. Note: The Quick Prompt speech cannot import speech items.
Once loaded you will either be taken automatically to the Setup menu, or you can select it from the Main menu.
In the Settings - Speech Items menu, you can select Load for Slides, Text or Board.
A file explorer similar to Windows File Explorer will open. Navigate your PC files and select the file you wish to import, then select Add. For Powerpoint files you can only add 1 file. If importing images, you can add multiple.
Once you've selected the file(s) you wish to add, select Load Slide(s). The images will be converted and imported into the Speech.
