    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 :)

        It's not just the lack of narration in exported video it's the lack of an audio channel full stop. A video presentation without sound is of pretty limited value. It would be great if you could add support for audio into the export to movie feature on PP for Mac.

        This is a huge problem. I paid quite a bit of money for Office 2016 for a Macbook Air, on the assumption that I could use PowerPoint for lectures for an online course. I used to do my recording on a PC. Now it seems that I simply cannot use the program for work.

        I can't even get it to save to mov or mp4 let alone the sound. I get 0 transfered... no matter how many times i try.

        Yeah, this feels like a bug. Recorded narration plays during a slide show, but not in the final video (despite the Export process specifically asking me whether I'd like to include recorded narrations via checkbox). Interestingly, the speaker icon indicating the narration IS rendered on the slide in the final video.

        This has to be a bug surely? I can't imagine someone thought it would be a good idea to go to the trouble of adding an export to video function but deliberately omit the audio content!

        Yes, please! I miss very much exporting to a video. Used it all the time for teaching my little 1st Graders, pre-2016.

        Those files format are a MUST HAVE for a software such as PowerPoint. I don't understand why we can't use those file format in 2016.
        Please, do something, it makes us loose a lot of time having to convert everything.
