Express Capture is an alternative option to Kaltura Capture and will result in a much smaller file size which may be beneficial for those with an unreliable internet connection. 

Using Express Capture, you can record your voice while going through a PowerPoint presentation and then upload the audio recording to Kaltura. Once you have uploaded the audio file, you can add your PowerPoint presentation and rearrange the slides on the timeline to match the audio.
