How to Insert a Sound Object in Your PowerPoint 2007 Slides

PowerPoint lets you play a sound whenever you display a specific PowerPoint slide, or only when you click the sound icon on the PowerPoint slide. If you want the sound to play automatically and the sound is a WAV file, it’s easier to add it to the slide transition than to add it as a separate object. If you want to control when the sound plays or if the sound file is in a format other than WAV, follow these steps:

1

Move to the slide on which you want to insert sound.

Your slide is open for editing.

2

Open the Insert tab on the Ribbon and then click the Sound button located on the right side of the tab.

The Insert Sound dialog box appears.

3

Select the sound file that you want to insert.

Click Start—Search to search for files.

4

Click OK.

A dialog box appears, asking whether you want the sound to play automatically when you display the sound, or play only when you click the sound’s icon.

5

Click either the Automatically or When Clicked buttons.

The sound clip is added to your slide and represented by a little speaker icon.
