The first step is to insert an audio file, you can whether record it directly by clicking Insert, Audio, Record Audio... or insert a previously recorded audio file by Clicking Insert, Audio, Audio from my PC...

Then insert your avatar image, it can be an bitmoji you copied from the Google Chrome bitmoji extension (link here) or a pixton character you inserted on PowerPoint using the PowerPoint Add-in (link here).

Next is to erase the existing mouth, select a freeform shape, draw a shape around the mouth, then select the fill color to be the one of the face using the eyedropper. Remove the outline by making it transparent.

Then group the two shapes together.

Now, insert a shape that will indicate to automate.video the position and size of the new speaking mouth. Insert a shape, for example an oval, and then edit the Alt Text. Enter %%MAGICMOUTH% in the alt text field. If you want a mouth with lipstick, add %%FEMALE% to the alt text (for example %%MAGICMOUTH% %%FEMALE%)

You can make sure that the avatar and mouth appear at the same time by going on the animations tab, click on the avatar, pick the appear animation, and choose Start: "With Previous". Do the same with the oval shape you inserted.

That's it, now log on to https://www.automate.video and upload your PowerPoint file and you'll get a speaking avatar in your video.
