What is the difference between the
Loop until Stopped option and the
Play across slides option?
The audio clip in the Loop until
Stopped option repeats for as long
as one slide is displayed. In contrast,
the Play across slides option clip
would play only once, but it would
continue to play while other slides
in the presentation are displayed.
Once the end of the clip is reached,
the sound would end and not
repeat.

If you had selected the On Click start option, you would need to i nd this icon on the slide

To Insert an Additional Audio File and Set Options
Having an audio clip play when Slide 1 is displayed would add interest and help
set the tone of the presentation. Only one bird appears on that slide, and it appears to be
singing heartily. A single bird singing would coordinate nicely with this clip art image.
The following steps insert a songbird audio clip into Slide 1 and set playback options.
Playing Audio
Continuously
You can play one audio
i le throughout an entire
presentation instead of
only when one individual
slide is displayed. When
you select the ‘Play across
slides’ option in the Start
box (Audio Tools Playback
tab | Audio Options
group), the audio clip will
play continuously as you
advance through the slides
in your presentation. If
you select this option, be
certain the length of the
clip exceeds the total time
you will display all slides in
your slide show.
