    If you save the presentation as a web page (*.htm), PowerPoint will create a subfolder in the same folder as the .htm file containing all the embedded graphics and sound files from the presentation. You may be able to find the file(s) you need in that subfolder - probably .wav.

    Thanks Hans. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> One thing though... it is a .wav file, but when I open it in WMP it has those metalic flaws in the playback like it's corrupt, and an icon appears in the system Tray for ffdshow audio decoder (something I've never seen before), yet playing it in WinAmp it playsback clean.

    I hadn't heard about ffdshow, but apparently it's an open source video and audio decoder available from SourceForge - see ffdshow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    I don't know why WMP would use ffdshow to play the .wav file.

    So ffdshow is a codec. I thought.... well, I guess I don't know what I thought. I know I didn't download it as a stand alone file. So I must have gotten it in a codec pack that I downloaded. When I saw it in the System Tray I thought it was something bad, but after looking at it and realizing it closed when WMP closed, I tried WinAmp to play the .wav file. ffdshow didn't come up and WinAmp played the file cleanly. Strange.

    Thanks for the Wikipedia link. I'll play with the settings in ffdshow and see if WMP will handle it better.
