I have a PowerPoint slideshow with recorded narration, slide advance 'on click', and transition sounds (the 'chimes' sound from the dropdown menu ). When I export it as a video everything looks great except the transition sounds are missing. How can I export a video that also includes the transition sounds in PowerPoint 365? Thanks!

    Hi, @Cameron, Dale
    Welcome to the Q&A forum, you can try the following methods:

    1. In File-Options-Export-Create Video, check whether "Use recording timing and narration" can be clicked.

    2. Remove the transition sounds, and then add the sounds directly to the slide. The sounds can then be set to play across slides and be triggered just before slide transitions to the next slide.
