This video will show you how to add a narrator sprite to introduce your program.

First, choose a narrator sprite.

Click choose new sprite from library.

This example uses the Gobo sprite, but choose any sprite you like!

Click and drag to move a sprite.

Next, introduce your program.

Select the Looks menu, and drag out a say block.

Type an introduction like, "Click the space key "to select your future home and job!"

Add a when flag clicked block to the top of the say block.

Click the flag to test it!

Great, the sprite talks while the home sprite switches costumes.

After the sprite introduces the program, it should disappear.

Add a hide block to the bottom of the stack.

Click the flag to test it.

It works, but the next time you click the flag, the sprite is still hidden.

To fix that bug, add a show block before the say block.

Click the flag to test it again.

Great.

Now it's your turn.

Choose a new sprite, use say and when flag clicked blocks to introduce the program, and use show and hide blocks to make the sprite appear at the start of the program, then hide.
