    Narration throoughout all slides (power point 2000)

    I need a step by step on how to add a sound file that will last throughout the whole presentation. I went to the help file and it said, On the Slide Show menu, click Custom Animation, and then click the Multimedia Settings tab. My problem is that when I click on the multimedia tab all my options are grayed out. <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>

    So if someone could let me know how to do a continual narration throughout my slide presentation I would really appreciate your help.

    Are you set up to record a narration?

    I have it but now my problem is that the sound files will not save with the presentation. If I want to save the file and take it to another computer all the pics come over but the sound files are left behind. <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    One of the key points/questions is how much narration there is. There is a huge (file size) difference in saying a few words about a few slides, vs. talking all the way through a 110 slide presentation that lasts 45 minutes.

    In 2000, there is an option to link a large narration file to another location. If you feel your file might be large, do that, but make sure you save it to a location that transfers with the file.

    Except for the above, the "...sound files being left behind.." isn't really possible in a correctly working install. PPoint should automatically do this. It's not a choice to the user. As this affects you, make sure that box isn't checked and being sent to timbuk too!
