PowerPoint: Sounds from the Clip Art pane do not play!
I received this question a while ago from someone using PowerPoint 2003:
I inserted a sound from the Clip Art task pane onto the slide and the sound icon shows up but it won't play the sound when I am on that slide while playing the whole presentation. Please help!
OK -- the answer for this question works not only for PowerPoint 2003 but also for most other versions:
- Right click the inserted sound, and choose Custom Animation from the resultant menu. This will bring up the Custom Animation task pane.
- With the sound clip still selected, click the Add Effect | Object Actions | Play -- this will add a play animation for the selected sound clip within the Custom Animation task pane -- select the animation within the task pane.
- Now change the Start event to After Previous.
- Save your presentation.
