it's a lengthy process and takes timing...

basically you need 2 videos - one of the slides and the other of you narrating (in which the frame size needs to be a lot smaller).

for this you will need a Screen Session Recorder - some suggestions can be found here: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-screen-session-recorder.htm

then you have to make sure that the narration is in sync with the slides.
