    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 :)

        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.

        Yes!!! the embedded videos don't play in video export..... really need this feature!!!

        Please add the capability for Powerpoint for Mac to be able to export to video so that it includes audio. This is not a feature, it's a break/fix. At the very least, show an alert when exporting the video that there will be no audio.

        I will like to be able to add a window to be able to see the speaker like I do with Zoom

        It does seem that others are as surprised as I am that this feature is not included. I know that Microsoft will put this right.

        Like others, I spent time recording narration only to find it doesn't work when you export the video. What is the point of exporting silent video? Until you add this feature, it might be considerate to note in the instructions on how to add narration AT THE TOP that it won't output to video...and, then again, what are you waiting for?

        Yes - it's essential to include linked or embedded video files within the PowerPoint Export to Video feature. This works fine in Windows but not Mac.

        This item really should have more votes - maybe it appears elsewhere under a different header?

        Just as important to add video files to Export To Video - it seems that no media can be included in the Mac version

        Lame. Can't believe narration is not saved on powerpoint for mac but it works with windows
