It’s always a fun exercise adding audio clips to PowerPoint. Some of you may wonder why would you want to add an audio clip? There may be any number of reasons, from adding a voice-over to just inserting some background music. Whatever your reason may be, it helps to know that PowerPoint can insert audio clips of various file types. MP3 and or WAV are common file types that you can insert in PowerPoint slides. These audio files automatically embed into your presentation.

By Ben Jones, AberInnovation

To take your business to the next level you will get to a stage when you need to pitch to investors for the capital you require.

This won’t be easy. Investors and business angels hear many pitches and a good rule of thumb to bear in mind is that only 1 in 10 pitches are deemed investable propositions. Once due diligence and the like are factored in, some claim that investment funds invest in as little as 2% of the total plans they receive.

The individuals you’ll be dealing with are rarely minded to beat around the bush and will have no qualms about telling you if they’re not interested. So, the stakes are high, and the chances are slim. That said, promising ideas are funded all the time, and the accelerator and incubator models that culminate in pitches for investment are becoming increasingly ubiquitous.

think-cell recently released version 11 of their well-known add-in for PowerPoint and Excel. My contact at think-cell alerted me about this new release. I decided to play around with this new release.

I first uninstalled think-cell 10, although you don’t need to do so. The folks at think-cell say that simply installing on top of an older version works just fine, but then, old habits die hard.

Next, I proceeded to the think-cell download page on their site that asked me to enter my email address, as registered in my think-cell account. Next, they sent me an email with the download link. Once I had installed think-cell, I was prompted to enter my license key. Finally, think-cell launched PowerPoint, and also opened up the Welcome to think-cell page on their site for me.

For those of you who do not have a think-cell license, you can still play with think-cell 11 using a 30-day trial license.

Let’s begin by finding where you can locate think-cell elements. Unlike many other add-ins, think-cell does not create a separate tab on the Ribbon. Rather, think-cell options are found within the Insert tab of the Ribbon in both PowerPoint and Excel, as can be seen in the figures below.
