In your web browser, go to ooo.mmhmm.app/talk or open the mmhmm app on your computer.
In the slide tray at the bottom, click Add Slide. This will create a new, blank slide where you can add content and media, change your slide background, and access presenter controls. By default, your new slide will be added to the mmhmm Scratchpad, which is the default presentation in mmhmm.
To add media to your blank slide, choose the slide media type at the top of the mmhmm stage. Choose from Media Library, Share Screen, Upload File, Add Text, Search GIPHY, or More to access more slide media options.
Any slide media you add will be stored in the Media Library and can be reused.
