VoxProxy – Creative Add-on Animated Graphics for PowerPoint
There are numerous add-on packages that you can use with Microsoft® PowerPoint® to deliver a more creative visual effect. One such package is VoxProxy®. It has a variety of animated cartoon characters that walk, stand, sit and talk on the slide screen. These characters assume a variety of positions and movements based on what you select from the menu. They speak the words that you type into the software. You might use the software characters to introduce new topics or to draw attention to a key concept. For example, a character might walk across the screen, face the audience, reach into his pocket to extract a note sheet and then say something like, “Hello, My name is ____ and I’d like to now introduce our next topic which is ____.”
Animated characters tie to brain-based research principles of adding fun, novelty, and humor to your presentation. They also involve sound, color, and movement that help attract and hold attention.
