Upload a PowerPoint presentation

Upload a PowerPoint presentation

You don't need to upload your PowerPoint to record your presentation with your narration.   

Set up PowerPoint for recording your screen while running the PowerPoint presentation. 

  1. It is recommended that you run the PowerPoint presentation in non-fullscreen mode which makes it easier to capture.
  2. Within the PowerPoint applications, from the ribbon (or menu bar in earlier versions) click Slide Show.
  3. Then select Set Up Slide Show.
  4. In the Set Up Show window, select Browsed by an individual (window) and then click OK to close the dialog.

Now whenever you run a presentation, it will show in a window that you can easily resize and capture.  At this point, use the screen recorder to record the Powerpoint slideshow in the resizable window.
