Insert a Background Song
You can insert a song that plays repeatedly during your presentation. PowerPoint can play AIFF
Audio (.aif), AU Audio (.au), MIDI (.mid or .midi), MP3 (.mp3), Advanced Audio Coding - MPEG-4
(.m4a, .mp4), Windows Audio (.wav), and Windows Media Audio (.wma) files.
If you choose music from a website, download it to your computer’s hard drive before inserting it
in your presentation; otherwise, as data flows to your computer from the Internet, your listener will
experience breaks in the music.
