INTRODUCTION

You aren't limited to using sound files found in the Clip Art Gallery in your presentations. If you like, you can add sound files that you obtain from other sources. All sound clips appear as speaker icons on the slide. When adding a sound file, you can choose to have the sound file play automatically or only when its icon is clicked.


TIP

Supported Sound Formats

You can add AIFF, AU, MIDI, MP3, Windows Media, and other popular sound file formats to your PowerPoint slides.


Click Automatically to have the sound play automatically when the slide is displayed in your presentation, or When Clicked if you want to activate the sound clip manually.

PowerPoint adds a speaker icon to your slide representing the clip.

Click and drag the speaker icon to the corner of your slide. You can double-click the icon to play the sound.
