Adding Multimedia and WordArt to Your Presentation
Editing Your Presentation
Locate the sound you want on your slide.
Select a sound from the Clip Art pane.
Choose Clip Art Audio, which opens the
Clip Art pane and displays a list of sound
files included with Microsoft Office and
available from Office.com. Optionally, enter
a category, such as insects, in the Search For
box, and then click Go to filter the sound
files that appear. Click the sound file icon to
insert it into your slide, or, if you want to
hear the sound before you insert it, pause
your mouse over a sound file and from the
arrow that appears, choose Preview/
Properties. The Preview/Properties dialog
box appears and your sound plays. Close
the Preview Properties box and if you want
the sound file on your slide, click its icon.
Figure 15-10 shows the Clip Art pane. After
you choose the sound you want, a sound
icon with audio controls and two Audio
Tools tabs appear.
The Audio Tools Playback tab, as seen in Figure
15-11, provides tools for you to preview the
sound, adjust the sound volume, and choose
other sound options.
Change sound preferences from the Audio Tools
Inserting a Video Clip
Placing a video clip onto a slide is very similar to
adding a sound clip. However, you do get more
than just an icon when you insert a video clip. You
get the first image on the video. You can select
your video from a saved file on your computer or
from the Clip Art gallery, which also checks for
videos from Office.com. Choose Insert>Media>
Video or click the Video drop-down arrow. Clicking
Choose Record Sound if you have a
microphone hooked up to your system and want
to record your own sound file.
