7. To play a sound when your action button is activated, select the Play

To test your button, you can right-click it and choose Open Hyperlink.
To change a button’s action, select it and then click the Action button on the

Action Settings dialog box, choose a new action and click OK.

Presenting a Presentation Online
Presenting online means to play a presentation on your computer for others
who watch it over the Internet. As you go from slide to slide, audience
members see the slides on their web browsers. Presenting online is an excellent
way to show a presentation to others during a conference call or to others
who don’t have PowerPoint.
Presenting online is made possible by the Office Presentation Service, a
free service for everyone who has Office software and a Microsoft Account.
(What a Microsoft Account is and how to obtain one — it’s free — is
explained in detail in Book X, Chapter 1). The first time you attempt to show
a presentation online, you are asked to provide your Microsoft Account
username and password.
The Office Presentation service creates a temporary web address for you to
show your presentation. Before showing it, you send audience members a
link to this web address. Audience members, in turn, click the link to open
and watch your presentation in their web browsers.
