In this tutorial, I will guide to you how to record a powerpoint presentation. If you are using older versions of Office, like 2016 and below, would you like to know what’s interesting about the newer versions that Office released more recently? There are quite a lot. Temporarily ignoring the improvements about the theme, interface, etc., we come to some extremely new features, one of which I want to introduce today is Recording.
Let’s dig into the article of how to record a presentation on PowerPoint.
I. Enable Recording tab
Like Developer – if you remember what it is – the Recording tab will not be shown in the menu bar at first hand, so you must bring it out to the ribbon.
Now go to File, then Options. Select Customize Ribbon, scroll this menu down and you will find the Recording box, tick on it then click OK.
Comeback to the interface and you will see the tab display on the Menu bar.
II. Record a powerpoint presentation.
We will learn about the Record Slide Show feature, all the remaining functions are very clear and easy to understand, you can find out more by yourself.
Step 1: Go to Recording and select Record Slide Show. To record from the current slide, select Record from Current Slide… To record from the beginning, select Record from beginning…
Step 2: This is the working interface of the Slideshow recorder.
Step 3: To start recording, click the Record icon or press R and wait for 3 seconds. Then you can start.
To stop recording or resume, press the I. key
While recording, you may want to use some tools like Pen, Eraser, combine them to make your presentation easy to understand.
Step 4: When you have finished, press Stop and click Replay to check for errors. You can then move on to the next slide and continue recording.
III. Delete timings or narration
In case you want to delete Timings or Narration for the recording, go to Record Slide Show and select Clear, choose 1 from the 4 clearing options below.
IV. Turn off timing/narration
To do this, go to tab Slide Show. You uncheck at the two boxes Play Narrations and Use Timings to turn both them off, or just one, depends on you.
Beside from PowerPoint itself, you can also use a third-party application that helps you record everything that happens on the screen. And maybe, you would like to convert PowerPoint file to video too, and luckily, we have an article about it. So, the choice is yours.
So, I have finished showing you how to record a presentation on PowerPoint. If you still stick with the old version, but also want to record, how about upgrade the version now? It’s not that the older version cannot make a record, but with all the newly added feature, I would recommend you upgrade right away! The functions are many and still waiting to welcome you.
And today’s article will end here. Hope you had some useful time, thank you and see you again.
