How to Make a Video with PowerPoint

Other Options

Record your screen (and microphone) while giving the presentation. There are effective and free options to do this on Linux (https://www.maartenbaert.be/simplescreenrecorder/), macOS (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208721), and Windows (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/simple-screen-recorder/9n5mvvbd0tgw).


As a last resort, and only if you are comfortable directly editing video, you can export your slides as images, record an audio track, and combine the two using software like kdenlive (https://userbase.kde.org/Kdenlive/Manual), iMovie (https://support.apple.com/enus/HT204674), or others (https://www.oberlo.com/blog/best-free-video-editingsoftware).
