There are many ways to improve your PowerPoint presentation, add animations to objects, customize the disc transition styles, and use interesting themes to name a few. In addition to all that, you can also add music to your presentation.
Adding music to your presentation
PowerPoint makes it very easy to add music to your presentation. Adding music to your presentation can be a good idea, but there are also cases where it can be considered unprofessional. We are not here to tell you when to do it, just how to do it, but make sure it is appropriate for the situation.
Change to the "Insert" tab and then click the "Sound" button.
A menu is displayed, which allows you to either upload music from your computer or record your own audio track.
] If you want to record your own sound, select "Record Sound" and the "Record Sound" window will appear. Go ahead and give your sound a name and then click on the "Record" icon when you are ready to start.
When the "Record" icon is selected, a timer will start giving you the total length of the sound being recorded. When you are ready to stop recording, press the "Stop" icon. To listen to your recording, you can press the "Play" icon. If you are satisfied with what you record, select "OK" to insert it in your presentation.
If you prefer to upload music from your computer instead, go back to the audio options menu and select "Sound on my computer." This opens the computer's directory. Locate the audio file you want to use, then select "Insert" at the bottom right of the window. PowerPoint supports several popular formats, such as MP3, MP4, WAV and AAC.
Now you see a speaker icon in your presentation. Here you can play the sound, control the volume and move the sound backwards or forwards 0.25 seconds.
In addition, the "Playback" tab is displayed in bands. The audio style is set to "No Style" by default. This means that the sound will only be played on the slide where you insert it, the icon will appear in the presentation and the sound will only begin when you click that icon.
But you can change all that. You can use the options here to adjust the default volume for playback, choose whether the music starts automatically or with one click, if it is played over other images, whether it resolves until you stop it and so on.
We go to change this by selecting "Play in the background" in the "Audio Styles" section.
There are also some other options available to you. You can add (or remove) bookmarks for specific times in your audio clip, trim parts of the sound and give your sound a certain input / output.
 Use these tools to customize the perfect sound for your presentation.
