Works as an app, with gmail, and as a standalone web tool.  Upload images, pdfs, and convert them to slides.  Add video and or audio narration.  Export as MP4 or share presentation as a link.  More of an voice over slide tool than a video creator editor.

Caveat: can not captioned the video comments. However, could potentially export the VT as a movie file which in turn could be captioned.
