Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Add Sound to Animation

Created: Tuesday, August 28, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:30 am



The main purpose of adding animation to any slide object is to draw the attention of the audience to some concept. After adding animation, you can set the animation event, and also the speed of the animation. To make it more interesting, you may also want some sound to play along with the animation. One aspect that you should always remember is that although you can add sound to an animation, it is not always necessary to do so — we suggest you only add sound sparingly — and even then, you must make sure that the sound adds some value to the animation. In addition, it is important that you use the perfect sound type for any animation — using clapping or roaring sounds is very cliché. Now that we have made you aware about the caveats, let us go ahead and explore the actual procedure.
