Add text to videos in PowerPoint

In a past post we explained how to add text to blank motion videos using video-editing software. You can easily add text to videos that are in a PowerPoint presentation. Here’s how:

First, insert a video.

  • From a blank slide, under Insert choose Video.
  • Then under Insert choose Text Box and type the words.
  • Format the font and colors as desired.

If you want the text to show up or fade away at certain points during the video, you can add Animations for timing. These features are under Animations in the toolbar along the top.
