Once you insert an audio clip into your presentation, you may find that it is too long, or there may be parts in the clip that you don’t want the audiences to hear. Or, maybe you just need a small bit to play, like the sound of that trumpet blowing! Although you can scrub the clip using the Player Controls bar to ascertain where you want the clip to begin and end, that option may become monotonous and inaccurate. Additionally, it also looks very unprofessional if you try scrubbing an audio clip right in front of your audience. Fortunately, PowerPoint’s Trim Audio option can make this easy for you. Follow these steps to explore how you can trim an audio clip right inside PowerPoint 2016.
