ASK

  • How to make music play throughout a powerpoint without stopping? I have powerpoint 2010. My project is due soon and i need to know how to make music play throughout my powerpoint without stopping when the slides change.

Answer

If you want to set the audio as background music, please follow the steps below.
1. Select the icon for the sound file on your slide.
2. From the Animations tab, locate the Effect Options button and click the More Arrow below it to Show Additional Effect Options.
3. Select the Timing tab.
4. From the Start drop-down menu select On Click.
5. From here you have two options. If you would like the sound to play by clicking anywhere on the screen, say after a title appears, then select Animate as part of click sequence. Just be sure if you select this option, that you properly arrange the sound on the Custom Animation pane so that it begins in the desired order. If you do not want the sound to start at a specific time, but rather by clicking a specific object, select Start effect on click of and then choose the object that will trigger the sound from the drop-down menu.
