Thank you for voting this request! If you are an Office 365 subscriber, you may now export your presentation to a video with a playback of the narration audio! Please upgrade to version 16.19(181109) or higher, and give it a try.

Again, thank you for helping us improve the product, and please keep voting the other features on your wish list :)

    Please can you add sound exporting to mac .MP4. it is annoying that you are able to do so on a PC but not a Mac

    I wanted to share the presentation I made for my baby so everyone can watch it. However, when I converted it to MP4 or MOV there wasn’t any audio. This is frustrating!

    Convert to Keynote
    Keynote to Movie
    Problem solved

    Had same issue. Powerpoint wouldn't convert audio on slides. Keynote does it perfectly.

    There is a work around to this problem:
    Rehearse timings by playing the recorded audio. Save the new timings. Export to an mp4 or mov and the narration will be included.

    I am an Office 365 subscriber and just tried exporting a presentation with naration to mp4 (or mov) using vers 16.25 and still no audio. Please correct this issue!

    Please help! My group assignment is due tomorrow and I have been adjusting the animations to be timed with the audio all day but now when I try to save as mp4 or mov I lose the audio! What do I do??

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This problem still exists! Waisted a whole day trying to get my audio-timings right only to find that my video exported with no sound and with the audio icon present on all slides even though I selected to hide the icon! Aghhh!

    Is there a solution to this audio conversion problem yet?! I am fully updated and need to convert a PPT to MOV or MP4 for inclusion on our website ASAP and the sound does not play. Please advise.

    Yet another victim of this ridiculous lack of audio for conversion to MP4... yes hours spent, yes shocked that when I thought I was don that it doesn't work an yes that I am done and yes that it due in a few hours with no solution for this colossal flaw in PPT for Mac... I hate Office 365!

    I'm using Office 365 PowerPoint for Mac version 16.22 and it's not working. Extremely frustrated as my deadline is tomorrow.
