INTRODUCTION

In addition to including prerecorded sounds on your slides, you can record new sounds to use in a presentation. In order to do this, your computer needs to have a microphone installed on it.

TIP

Recording Sound Effects

You can use your computer microphone to record more than your voice. With a little creativity, you can create your own sound effects.

You MIGHT need to move the speaker icon for the recorded sound so it does not interfere with other slide objects. Click and drag the icon to reposition it on the slide.

TIP

Playing the Sound During the Show

When you run your slide show and reach the slide containing the recorded sound, you must click the speaker icon on the slide to play the recording. See Parts 10 and 12 to learn more about running a slide show.
