At a later time if you wish to use Elluminate for live meeting you will have to set the Security for the page for Reviewers to have access. See details here.

At the beginning of your session you will see a recording reminder. The Start button will begin recording right away but most likely you will want to setup your presentation before you record. Just hit Close if you don't want to record yet.

You can now record your voice and navigate through slides with the arrow keys.  Be sure to stop your recording when you are done.
