PowerPoint Video Recording Won't Record Audio?

There are many possible reasons why you record a video in PowerPoint without audio. Here are several workarounds to fix that audio issue.

Completely Close PowerPoint and Restart It

When you record PowerPoint presentations with audio and video, a one-off glitch with PowerPoint can make audio recording unsuccessful. Try opening the task manager to close the PowerPoint program by ending the task and then launching it again.

Check the Microphone Recording Permission Setting

You should turn on the microphone option on your computer for other applications to access. Go to Settings > Privacy > Microphone, and toggle on the access permission option.

Use Audio Troubleshooter

Using the Audio Troubleshooter tool, you can find and solve the problem of PowerPoint failing to record audio. Go to Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot > Additional troubleshooters, click Recording Audio > Run the troubleshooter and follow the on-screen instructions.

Update PowerPoint

The outdated PowerPoint version may also be the cause. If the above methods don’t work for you, update the software to the latest to see.

Connection Problem

After you record audio and video on PowerPoint, play the video on another device and test whether there is a connection problem between the projector and the computer.

Turn off Defender Protection

The security software on your PC may stop you from accessing audio and webcam. Disable the protection.
