To export your PowerPoint as a video, you will need a screen recorder to record the file and save as an MP4 or other video formats. FonePaw Screen Recorder, for example, is a good recorder for you to record and add narration to the PowerPoint.
Before the recording, you can write a script for your presentation. A script reminds you of what you are going to say instead of reading from the slides. Your audiences will be bored if you read word by word from the slides.
The script should include a good beginning. You can intrigue your audiences by telling a story or asking a question. The body of your speech should have 3 clear points, which make your presentation more logical. At the end of your presentation, wrap up the 3 points, and highlight some key points again. When you are prepared well, download FonePaw Screen Recorder and enable it.
Open your PowerPoint slides and choose Video Recorder from the three options.
You can choose to record the whole screen or customize the recording area by yourself. For example, you can drag the cross cursor and record your slides only.
Next, turn off the system sound and adjust the microphone sound. These steps make your audio sounds clearer.
Then click REC to begin recording. Present your slides and speak to the microphone.
You can control the tempo of your speech. If you are too nervous or tired, click the Pause button to have a rest.
Moreover, you can prepare materials like music, video, or picture you want in advance and play it during the recording. When you are finished, click the Stop button to end the recording and preview the video.
If you are satisfied with it, click Save to select the save path. Click Re-Record to record again and the original one will not be saved.
