If you’re creating a PowerPoint presentation, adding a couple of music tracks, voiceovers or sound effects can go a long way in making the presentation more interesting and entertaining. Adding any kind of audio to PowerPoint is a simple process and PowerPoint also has the ability to perform simple tasks on the audio like trimming, fading and adjusting the volume. In this article, I’ll walk you through all the steps and different options for adding audio to your presentation.
Depending on your version of Office, some menus may have different options and I will try to point those out as I go along. We’ll be talking about PowerPoint 2007, 2010 and 2013.
Before we get started, let me mention the different audio formats supported by each version of PowerPoint. If your audio file is not in one of the compatible formats, you’ll need to first convert it using an audio conversion tool. PowerPoint 2007 & 2010 – AIFF, AU, MIDI, MP3, WAV, WMA PowerPoint 2013 – All of the above plus MP4 audio How to Add Music to PowerPoint In all recent versions of Office with the ribbon interface, you have to click on Insert and then click on Sound or Audio at the far right. In all versions of Office, you’ll see the Audio from file and Record Sound options. In Office 2007, you’ll also see Sound from Clip Organizer and Play CD Audio Track. In Office 2010, you’ll see only the extra Clip Art Audio option, which is the same as clip organizer in Office 2007.
If you already have an audio file you would like to import, then go ahead and choose Sound from File. The audio file has to be in one of the formats mentioned above.
Choose Sound from Clip Organizer or Clip Art Audio if you want to search Microsoft Online collections for free sounds. Just type in a search term and a list of available free sounds will appear. Click on any item to insert the audio into your presentation. Sometimes you won’t find very many or any sounds using this option, so check out my post on.
If you have a CD with music tracks on it, you can actually have PowerPoint play the CD during your presentation using the Play CD Audio Track option (only Office 2007). Remember, though, that if you use this option, you need to make sure that the CD is inserted into the drive on whichever computer is playing the presentation. You can tell it which track to start on and which track to stop on. You can also continuously loop the music if you like. Pretty neat feature if you have a CD from a store and you only want to play a specific part of it. The Record Audio option is straightforward and worked very well in my tests.
A small audio recording dialog pops up and you just press the record button to start a new recording. Press stop, click OK and the recorded audio will be inserted into current slide of your presentation. This is a super easy way to add some voiceovers to your slides. Once you have added the audio using any of the above methods to your presentation, you can click on it and you will see a new menu called Audio Tools appear at the very top. If you click on Playback, you will see a bunch of options like Preview, Bookmarks, Editing, and Audio Options.
Let’s go through each option here. Obviously, to hear the audio file, just click on the Play button. Bookmarks is an interesting option that is probably the only aspect of adding audio to PowerPoint that requires you to learn something. Bookmarks If you add a bookmark to an audio file, you can then trigger an animation to occur when that bookmark is reached.
In terms of voiceovers, you can have the points you are talking about appear one at a time while you talk about them rather than all of them showing up at once. First, go to the point in your audio file where you would like to add a bookmark and then click the Add Bookmark button. You should now see a small little circle at the point where the bookmark was added. If you hover your mouse over it, it will show you the name of the bookmark (Bookmark1 in my case) and the exact time where the bookmark was added. Now for the fun part! Click on any object on the slide and then click on Animations in the ribbon bar. Choose an animation from the list box and then set the options, duration, delay, etc as you desire.
