Can't make audio work with PPT Add-In

I downloaded the free trial, and tried to use the Powerpoint add-in to record over my slides. I cannot make the audio work! I know it's not my mic, as it works perfectly when I use Zoom. Help! I want to buy this program, but won't if I can't make this work!

maybe try this test ...

record your PPT presentation with Camtasia Recorder, like you would with any other screencasted video; do not use the PPT add-in

does that work?

I suggest double-checking that you haven't accidentally turned the mic off in the add-in as I showed in this reply. It's far too easy to do.

You may have already done this but just to cover all the basics

Make sure the add-on audio settings are correct and your mic is selected.

Thanks so much, everyone.  I turned up the audio setting, and it recorded.  Going to buy the software now!
