Using Teams desktop, when sharing a PowerPoint presentation using Teams PowerPoint sharing (not via my desktop), Teams ceases showing my live camera video to attendees - it switches to showing just my avatar to attendees despite my video still being enabled and live. I would like to keep my video broadcasting while simultaneously sharing a PowerPoint presentation so that attendees can see me while I am presenting. Is this not possible? I don't want to resort to conventional desktop/window sharing as a workaround.

 

Thanks,

Bob

Hi @Bob Manjoney   Does this unverified resource help?  It suggests putting the PPT deck in slide show mode

Thanks, but unfortunately that workaround relies on conventional screen sharing.
