How to insert music into a PowerPoint 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016 presentation
If you use PowerPoint 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016, in order to insert music into the presentation you need to open the slide where the music should begin and go to the “Insert” tab. Here, on the tab "Insert, you need to click on the" Sound "button and select" Sound from file "in the menu that opens.
After that, a window for selecting a file will open. Select the file with the music you need and a small player with a speaker image will appear in the presentation.
By default, playback of inserted music starts only after pressing the “Play” button. If this option for launching music is not suitable for your presentation, then you can enable automatic playback. To do this, select the image of the speaker that appeared after inserting the music with the mouse and go to the “Playback” tab. There is a drop-down menu with which you can choose how to start playing music.
Three playback options are available:
In addition, on the “Playback” tab, there are other functions that may be useful to you. Further we will consider some of these functions.
Continuous music playback. On the Playback tab, you can enable continuous playback. In this case, the music inserted in the PowerPoint presentation will be played in a circle. This is very convenient if you want the music to sound throughout the presentation.
Hiding the image. By setting the checkbox next to the "Hide when showing" function, you will hide the speaker image during the slide show.
Volume. Using the “Volume” drop-down menu, you can change the volume of the music inserted into the presentation. There are four gradations of volume: quiet, medium, loud and mute.
Duration of fading. Using the "Extinction Duration" function, you can configure the smooth appearance and smooth loss of sound.
Sound editing. Also in the PowerPoint presentation editor you can perform the simplest editing of music.
To do this, click on the “Sound Editing” button and in the window that appears move the sliders indicating the beginning and end of the sound track.
You can add an audio file to a slide as follows.
There are two options to add in PowerPoint 2016. The first one is just inserting media from a computer. The second is sound recording. We will need the first option.
A standard browser will open where you need to find the required file on the computer.
This completes the audio upload. However, just inserting music is half the battle. For her, after all, there must be an appointment, and this is exactly what should be done.
Sound settings for the general background
To begin with, it is worth considering the work of sound as an audio accompaniment to a presentation.
When you select the added music, two new tabs appear in the header in the header. “Work with sound”. We don’t really need the first one, it allows you to change the visual style of the audio image - this very speaker. In professional presentations, the picture is not displayed on the slides, and therefore it does not make much sense to set it up here. Although, if necessary, you can dig here.
We are interested in the tab "Playback". Several areas can be distinguished here.
The next bookmark is "Alt" + "End",
Previous - "Alt" + "Home".
All changes here are applied and saved automatically.
Depends on the scope of the particular inserted audio. If this is just a background melody, then just click on the button "Play in background". Manually, this is configured as follows:
It is important to note that audio with these settings will only play when the view reaches the slide on which it is placed. So, if you want to set music for the whole presentation, then you need to put such a sound on the very first slide.
If it is used for other purposes, then you can leave the beginning Click-to-Click. This is especially useful when you need to synchronize any actions (for example, animation) on a slide with sound.
As for the other aspects, it is important to note two main points:
Sound settings for controls
The sound for the control buttons is configured completely differently.
The control settings window opens. At the very bottom is a graph that allows you to configure the sound for use. To enable the function, you need to put a corresponding checkmark in front of the inscription "Sound".
It is important to note that this function only works with sound in .WAV format. Although there you can choose to display all the files, other audio formats will not work, the system will simply give an error. So you need to prepare the files in advance.
In the end, I would like to add that the insertion of audio files also significantly increases the size (the volume occupied by the document) of the presentation. It is important to consider this if any limiting factors are present.
