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 :)

    Hi PPT Product Team, I am not sure if I should also tweet this but Mac users including myself are still unable to access the audio feature on PPT for Macs. I see the request was made in June of 2016 and a response "Under Review" on Jan 24th 2018. I would like to know the status of this update and what your next steps are to complete this request. This is highly frustrating.

    What good is a video or recording without the audio. I just spent hours trying to make this work and now find out it isn't possible. What a stupid thing to omit. We should be able to make a PPT recording something to upload to YouTube easily.

    this feature was the only reason I got this on my Mac and am just finding out now that I'm recording that it doesn't work. Please add. So frustrating.

    Please add this feature. I was very surprised to find it not already implemented. I must go to an outside resource, that costs me money, to enable this ability. Please add this feature.

    Hi, We build our presentation is PPT. with embedded video. Our audience requires the full playback with all video and audio or it's of no value to us. 'Hense we are looking for an alternative software solution. It would be nice if that feature was added. A partial ability to export to video without audio and the embedded video is pointless to make a pun.

    How does our university provide us with MS Office Products and require us to complete multiple presentations to upload to BlackBoard, but PPT for Mac cannot export to MP4 or MOV? This is basic functionality in 2018. I"m so frustrated trying to upload my video and to find out that I actually can't do it with PPT because I am on a Mac.
