How to record a PowerPoint presentation

There are two ways to record a PowerPoint presentation with audio and video:

  • Add audio to the slides and export it as a video
  • Use a screen recorder to record yourself presenting PowerPoint

Between the two methods, recording presentations with a screen recorder is more effective and engaging than the other. Since it is more lively and provides a real-time-like experience, the audience stays focused on your slides.

With Vmaker's free screen recorder, it's easy to record your PowerPoint presentation with audio and video in no time. In fact, it's as easy as creating the sides themselves. Let’s see how to record your PowerPoint presentation with audio on Vmaker!
