    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 :)

        I have PowerPoint 365 for Mac. I cannot get video to trim nor can I get the sound to export to MP4. Please make this possible and easier. My video is a waste of time without the sound.

        It doesn't make sense that one could make a video...but without sound. Rather not make the video, it seems.

        I have just bought Office 365 subscription, as the previous Office 16 volume license would not allow saving to movies, only to realize that my videos are soundless and therefore useless. Feels like a totally waster investment. Hope you will fix this very fast.

        Why allow me to add audio to my PowerPoint and then not allow me to export it to video?
        There's not even an easy way to listen to the narration with another window open. I'm trying to refine my talk track using original narration and the playback stops when I switch to the notes section or try to go to another window. Come on!

        Please make it possible to change a PP presentation containing a video into mp4 format WITHOUT LOSING THE AUDIO CONTAINED IN THE VIDEO.

        Come on guys, why you add features in PC but arbitrarily exclude them for Mac users? Seriously, add the feature.

        I have to inconvenience other people to get my presentation converted and I'm a student. What a way to make us work for our projects as if we don't have enough to deal with!

        This is one of the most ridiculous features to not be included on PP for Mac. It is shameful this has not come to fruition yet. Every time I do a search expecting the change to have occurred, I get more angry.

        Like so many others, I cannot believe this has not been completed. So frustrating!

        Should be able to convert .ppx files to video, including animations & sound, just like the windows version of Office 2016!!!

        I just spent hours recording narration on a 45 minute PowerPoint Presentation to convert to a Quicktime move to find there is not sound. Can't believe you allow narration without this ability. Please add this feature asap.
