Many speeches in the real world are supported by notes, a script, presentation slides, etc. Ovation allows you to bring these into the virtual world with you and use them on various virtual speech tools such as a tablet, notecard, and teleprompter.

Imports are uploaded on the Ovation web portal and then downloaded to Ovation when you sign in to the application.

There are three categories of Imports:

  1. Text

  2. Slides (and related Slide Notes)

  3. Board


Ovation can import many different text files of different formats, including pdf, doc, docx, and txt.


Ovation can import Microsoft PowerPoint files (ppt and pptx) and individual images of format jpg or png.

*Important - Be aware that slides in PowerPoint files, when imported into Ovation, can sometimes become distorted. This is often the result of embedded animation, video, and custom fonts in the PowerPoint files. If you notice this, we recommend converting your PowerPoint files to individual images first and then importing them into Ovation. Videos, animation, and audio embedded in PowerPoint files are not supported in Ovation.


Ovation can import jpg and png images for use on whiteboards and chalkboards. This feature allows you to import pre-drawn images to your board to assist you.

Sync imports to Ovation

When you sign in to the Ovation application, all imports in your account are automatically downloaded. However, if you made changes while already signed in to Ovation, you will need to Sync those changes.

You can Sync in the Manage menu.
