Q. Hello, please help me figure out why I am unable to record a narrated slideshow on powerpoint

Hello- I am having an impossible time recording audio on to my power point presentation. For some reason, when I click on the record slideshow button nothing is being recorded even though it visually looks as though it is.



The first thing you should check is that the microphone on your computer is functional. If it has not been activated, you may need to go into your settings and activate your microphone.

For MS PowerPoint directions for adding audio, copy and paste a link below depending on the version of PowerPoint you use.

If you use MS PowerPoint 2007, follow this link: 


If you use MS PowerPoint 2010, follow this link: 


If you use MS PowerPoint 2013 or 2016, follow this link:
