In this article, we want to learn how to insert audio into your PowerPoint slideshow to impress audience with something creative and new. Also, you need to know that using audio files is best for listeners because they like to hear things more than reading or watching.
Well… Now it’s time to talk about watchers.
We’ve already talked about the readers who learn better by reading things and mentioned the ways we can support their learning style.
For sure you remember this slide saying that our brain process images 60000 times faster than texts.
so please use High-quality images in your slides.
Look at this slide.It’s a slide of a famous professor but you do not actually face a high-quality image.
These kinds of images are not actually satisfying to watchers.
Or take a look at this one, the quality is much low that everyone would feel that easily and it can actually annoy your audiences specially watchers.
So don’t forget this important tip of not using low-quality photos in your slides.
As the next point, I should say be careful not to use any of these kinds of clip arts because they may make your slides look amateur unless you’re presenting for children.
But the Clip art’s time is over nowadays.
PowerPoint office used to offer Clip arts before but not anymore. So never use them in your slides.
The next point that can annoy watchers is to change the aspect ratio.
Sometimes, to make the photo fitted into our slides, we have to change one of its sides.
For example, look at this correct image and compare it with the previous slide.
This won’t actually help your slides to look professional.
Now look at this one.
To fill the empty spaces, I may change its aspect ratio which may really annoy your watcher audiences.
In the next lesson, I’ll teach you how to go full screen.
We have already talked about readers and watches so it’s time for the third learning style called listener.
How to add audio to our slides?
you can add audio to your presentation and play it across slides in the background of your slideshow on the background of your slideshow
On the insert tap select audio and then audio on my PC. To add the audio in the file explorer locate the music file you want to use and then select insert.
With audio icons selected on the playback tab select play in the background. In some lessons before you may remember that I used audio of lion roar like this.
Here are different ways to play automatically when you get to that slide in your presentation.
To start and audio immediately when the slides appear during the presentation and we start audio after a delayed interval of the time that you set.
you can even make the audio to be fade at the end of it in audio that you added to your PowerPoint slide you can trim away unwanted content and the beginning or end of the clip or both.
Here, you can even check the Play across the slide option or loop until it has stopped. If you select the plain background option you actually set the audio clip constantly play across your slides in the background.
These are the feature available on PowerPoint and it actually depends on how to use them to ring your slides. So now that you have learned how to insert audio into your PowerPoint slideshow, I hope you can create better slides for your audience no matter which type they are: listeners, watchers, doers or readers.
