Rehearse TimingsWhen rendering the video file, PowerPoint will allow you to assign default timings to the slides in your presentation. While it's true the viewer may be able to pause and restart a video, this process can be distracting and take away from your message. If your slide contains text, read it at a slower pace and then count to 3 before advancing. If it contains a graphic intended to convey a particular message, pretend you've never seen it before and peruse it at a leisurly pace. you'll find the Rehearse Timings button on the Slide Show tab in the Set Up group.
Animate MeaningfullyWhile you can take full advantage of PowerPoint's object and text animation features, you don't want to get carried away just because it's a video! One cool animation to use when portraying typing text in a field is Appear with the "By letter" option selected. Depending upon the speed you select on the Timing tab in the Appear dialog box, it can really mimic typing. You can even insert a typing sound with Clip Art Audio. Access that from the Insert tab, Media group and the Audio button. You might have to tweak the 'seconds delay between letters.'
The VoiceIf you're going to record voice to deliver the presentation in the video, you want to make sure that it's the highest quality it can be. Not all of us have voices that sound like 'buttah', but all of us can do things to improve the quality of our speaking voice in a recording. If at all possible record audio with a good quality microphone. Microphones that plug into your computer are easy to fine. Check out this article by Jason Salas' for some good tips.
