“Can I record myself on PowerPoint? I want to capture myself presenting a PowerPoint to make a lecture. Can I record myself talking over a PowerPoint with any built-in recording feature?”

Yes, when you record a PowerPoint presentation with the built-in recording feature, you can record yourself as well. Therefore, you can capture the slide show and your face at the same time to video capture yourself presenting a PowerPoint. Whether you are using a Mac, PC, or laptop, you can try the native Record option to make a video of your presentation.

To record yourself talking over a PowerPoint:

  1. Open your PowerPoint file and go to Slide Show > Record > From Beginning.
  2. Enable the camera and microphone and click Record.
  3. Once done, click Stop.
  4. Click File > Export to save the recording to your computer.

If you don’t want to use the built-in option, using a third-party screen recording tool like SurFlex Screen Recorder is equally helpful. It can capture your screen, webcam, and audio on your PC or Mac, allowing you to capture any on-screen content.
