Getting Ready to Add Sound to a Slide
To insert a sound file from your hard drive onto a PowerPoint slide, follow
1. Move to the slide to which you want to add the sound.
2. Open the Insert tab on the Ribbon, click the Audio button located on
the right side of the tab, and then choose Audio on My PC.
The Insert Audio dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 15-1.

3. Select the audio file that you want to insert.
You may have to rummage about your hard drive to find the folder
that contains your sound files. (In Figure 15-1, I navigated over to my
Downloads folder to find some MP3 files that I recently downloaded.)
4. Click the Insert button.
The audio file is inserted into the current slide, along with a toolbar of
controls that let you play the sound. See Figure 15-2.
You can also insert sounds from the Internet. To do so, click the Audio
button on the Insert task pane tab and then choose Online Audio. Then, you
can search for the sound you want to insert.
