Tip: The audio icon is a well-known symbol that indicates to viewers that there’s an audio clip to play. But
you’re not limited to this icon for your audio clip. If you’d prefer a different picture, then click the audio
icon and go to the Audio Tools | Format tab. In the Adjust section, click the Change Picture button (Alt, JN,
G). This opens a dialog box where you can find and select any picture you want to replace the audio icon.
Adding Clip Art Audio
Office also has a rich collection of sound clips, both built in and available on Office.
com, to add sound effects to your slides. If you want to add a little mood music or
play applause, chirping birds, sirens—just about any sound you can think of—you’ll
probably find what you’re looking for in Office’s audio clip art library.
