    Can't get sound to play (2003)

    I am just trying to get an audio file to play on my PP presentation. It is a short one, less than 12 slides. I do as the help menue suggests but when i push play to hear the sound, NOTHING happens. Can anyone tell me if there is a trick I am missing that PP failed to put in the instructions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Hans,

    It's such a simple task, it is so frustrating to spend so much time just getting something this simple to work.

    I will give the links a shot.

    Thanks again,

    Thank you Hans,

    I was able to get it to work, I think something is strange with the particular file I was trying to load. I went to some others and they worked fine. One more question if that's ok, how do I get the soundtrack to fade to nothing on the last frame?

    Thanks again,

    PowerPoint doesn't have the ability to fade sound. You can use a sound editor such as Audacity (free) to edit the sound file.

    Thanks for all your help Hans, we are good to go. Thanks for the tips on the informational sites as well.

    I'm sure we will have the opportunity to talk again.
