How to record yourself speak in PowerPoint – Record Slide Show ✔

Hello again and welcome in another cool tutorial. I had another question where a student asked how
can you record myself, for example, if you want the presentation to speak automatically or you want to create a video or you
don’t even need to be at the presentation and the presentation can speak for you. You can do a lot of
interesting things with that and it’s very simple in PowerPoint. Actually you just go to Slide Show and there you have it. You have the entire recording options. You can select Record From Current Slide to just this slide or Record From Beginning. So, let’s say that I
go into recording mode, I enter this mode. Well, my device it’s my webcam
is now not set up correctly. It doesn’t matter, I do not want my webcam to be selected here. Basically it’s because I’m
recording the video right now and the webcam is already in use. Okay, so I have this slide and in the left upper corner look what we have here. We have Record, so let’s say that I want to explain this slide to you. I press R, I prepare myself and I’ll now speak freely
about text box one, text box two, text box
three, whatever, whatever. I can even select colors and
select several icons here. All right, I’ll explain
all of them to you. Okay, I’ll be explaining
and then I would end. I would stop my recoding right there because I just wanted
to record this slide. Look what happened. A sound icon has appeared. I’ll just exit it with my Escape key, I’ll exit everything and look what happened. I have here a voiceover. You can see I have my voiceover and what’s amazing and important here is when you go to Transitions, the duration of this slide has been automatically adjusted to play as long as I’m
explaining this slide. You see, my recording it 40 seconds long, so this slide will also
advance after 40 seconds. I just select, deselect
this on mouse click because I want this presentation to run automatically. Most likely I will export it to a video and I could do the same
for each of the slides. Maybe those objects you can decide if you really want to have those objects. This is just an addition and now I could simply go to File, Export, Create a Video and I could
create a straight video out of it. Now you have several choices. Let me show you also
going by the animations. Animation pane, you see, the audio number one and the
ink is automatically playing. I’ll just press F5 to
show you what I mean. Text box one, text box two, text box three, whatever, whatever. I can even select colors and select. Wow, this is pretty amazing, so in the reality you don’t even have to
be at your presentation if you catch a cold or for example you are creating a presentation with several people and you will do your part
by recording yourself. No problem, you can
even make fun with this, so this is another cool tip in PowerPoint to know about. I think that’s not only a great technique, it’s something to really use because recording will be always useful now matter what we do online. Thanks once again and see
you in other tutorials.

  8. Your Green Bill says:

    Thanks man. Record Slide Show is a bit clearer now. Can you explain the point of the Notes function and how to use it?

  9. Cindy Greaney says:

    I've been using this exact way of recording for weeks.  Now today it's like it has vanished.  Any suggestions on where it went.  I like this way the best because I can stop an listen between each slide.  The other way shows the record icon in the top right corner and it keeps running.  I don' like it.  Hopefully you will have a suggestion for me.  Thanks!

    How do you get the media controls (audio and webcam to display)? I'm on PPT 2016 with 'show media controls' activated but USB webcam is not an option.

  11. Kelly Barnett says:

    So, I actually need to do what you did to present this video. I need to play a PowerPoint while appearing. You are in the tiny screen in the upper right. Can I do that while the PPT is playing via webcam? Thanks.

    what application you use ro record screen right now? please answer

  13. Rj Mc says:

    Love the vid, very informative. My main question now is – how did you make your video? You said in another comment you used Camtasia – but I've used that too, and it doesn't let you move the camera screen in real time, which i thought you were doing. So maybe you weren't? You just recorded it without actually seeing where your webcam video would go, and then after you finished, you adjusted the video? If so, can you recommend a software where you can use powerpoint presentations AND move and adjust your PiP at the same time? (and record it). Thanks! Please answer (haha, just a joke from the last guy) 😉

  14. Rj Mc says:

    Ah ok, that's exactly what I needed to know. I know about Camtasia, and how it lets you move the webcame vid in post production. I thought you were moving it in real time, as you recorded, which is what I'm looking for. As far as I can tell, OBS can't do that. But I believe I found some software that can, called ApowerREC. Thanks for the reply!

  16. Jan McInnis says:

    thanks! great video – and it was short and to the point, which is perfect!

  17. Ronald Mondello says:

    I just bought CyberLink YouCam7. So easy to video and use Power Point but the files are WAY too big. There is something wrong and the technical guys are looking into it. A 3 minute video was 3000 meg. If they can't solve this, any other recommendation? I will pay anything.

    I made a video but mi recorded voice get attenuated when I do a movement of the mouse or change slides. How can I overcome this?

  21. rhytmicexistance says:

    I have a problem which would probably be answered by you better than Microsoft:

    When I click the record button instead of going to the "Recording Mode" as you show here a primitive pop up button is opened instead where the recording time is shown only with pause and start.
    The difference why this Recording View is valuable is that it has the option to show notes, start recordings after 3 seconds of countdown, better usage of laser and drawing pen for presentation. I was using this view and after Microsoft downloaded some update packages… Kabooom… after closing and opening the program it vanished forever.

    I have tried to read many forums and search for an answer for opening this "Recording mode" but there is no such answer. Microsoft support is useless
