    The comments already posted are SO SO true. It is absolutely ridiculous that a presentation cannot be exported with audio files.

    This has been managed by amateurs in the past. There were 1002 votes for the change and apparently a Microsoft "expert" proudly presented it as resolved from versions 16.19 onwards. Well, it hasn't been resolved you jokers!!! No-one even bothered to provide an update and apologise. So embarrassing...

    I have been requesting this capability via various forums for a long time. As I understand it, audio created within PPT will be included in a video export, but external audio imported into PPT (in my case, a professional narrator and music) will not be included in a followup export. This is not an issue with Windows PPT, but remains one with the Mac version. To be clear, I DO NOT see this as a feature request, but a problem/issue that needs to be resolved! I am quite upset that after all these years, the Mac community continues to not be supported in this regard.

    I have a presentation with an audio file I inserted that DOES actually play when I export to MOV but for the life of me I don't know why? I've tried inserting other M4A's and used new presentations but they DON'T play after export to MOV? Why does that one work and the others don't?

    So it does export sound but it seems like there's a bug maybe?

    This function has been requested for years. They indicate the project was completed in version 16.19 to no avail as indicated by the number of comments. My work around has been to make PPT presentation as usual. Open in Keynote, which we have as Mac users. Record there and then export as MOV. If you export at PPT the recording will be stripped off. Eventually, I'll get used to using Keynote to create the slides and give up on PPT completely.
