PowerPoint's recording tool allows you to add audio narration to your existing PowerPoint presentations.
The Recording tab contains many of the features you'll want to use in your PowerPoint recordings, such as adding audio and video. The Recording tab is disabled by default, but once enabled, it will permanently remain enabled on the PowerPoint ribbon.
View Microsoft's Record a slide show with narration and slide timings webpage for instructions on how to enable the Recording tab and use its features.
Once the presentation is finished, it will need to be exported as a video file and shared via a video hosting platform.
Videos can be uploaded to any video hosting platform. However, it is recommended that you use CPP's video hosting platform, Kaltura, or YouTube. Note: Regardless of the platform that you use, all videos need to be closed-captioned to meet accessibility requirements.
