I'm totally new to the Presentation side of LO, and have never completed a slide show in MS Office. How can I create a voice-over narration for a slide show presentation - automated or manually... Doug

Record one sound file for each slide using some external program.

Then in LibreOffice Impress go to Slide Show → Slide Transition and for chosen transition method, by default No Transition which means nothing happens visibly, from Sound drop-down box select Other Sound..., locate recorded sound file for current slide and click Open. Do this for every slide you want to have narration.

After you set up your presentation you can see how it will behave in real-time and practice using Slide Show → Rehearse Timings.
