We leave some suggestions on how to record your presentation

Screen casting is basically a digital recording of the computer screen output, often including audio narration. Screen casting is different from screen shooting or screen capturing in that the former contains video captures ‒ visual components similar to a movie ‒ of the computer screen activity accompanied by audio, while the latter provides images of the screen content at a particular time. There are a variety of tools available that can be used to create screencasts Some of them are freely available on the Internet, as presented in the following table. Our recommendation is to use OBS (Open Broadcast Studio), apowersoft or moveavi (see links and more details in the table below) but many other options are available. Options marked with ** may be of your interest.

Before you proceed further (in case you opt for OBS) here you can find how to deal with it:
