Play a sound file over multiple slides in PowerPoint
How do I play a sound file over multiple slides in a PowerPoint presentation?
In Powerpoint, you can specify when a sound file should stop playing. For whatever reason Microsoft considers this a "Custom Animation" property. Follow the directions below (taken from the PowerPoint Help files) to specify how many slides the sound file should play for.
- Right-click on the speaker icon that you inserted into your power point slide (this represents the inserted sound file), click on Custom Animation
- In the Custom Animation task pane, click the arrow on the selected item in the Custom Animation list, and then click Effect Options.
- On the Effect tab, under Stop playing, select After, and then set the total number of slides the file should play on.
