Using Music and Sounds

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


You can enhance your presentation by adding music and sound.  Once you learn this skill, don't use it in excess in your presentations.  The audience wants to hear you (or your recorded narration) more than they want to hear the music and sounds.

Using Music and Sounds

1.  Click the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds and select Sound From File...

2.  Find the sound you want to use.

3.  Click OK.

4.  A dialog box will now appear.  Click Yes if you want the sound (or music) to play automatically through the presentation, or no if you want it to start when you click the music icon.

5.  Drag the music icon to where it is convenient. 

6.  Test the sound by running your presentation (Slide Show --> View Show)

7.  If you selected the option to have the music play when you click the icon, click the sound icon (the one you dragged in Step 5.).
