This video provides step-by-step instructions for how to insert sounds or music into a PowerPoint presentation, using Microsoft Office 2007. The narrator uses the insert sound tool and selects an audio file that, and demonstrates how to make it play automatically when the PowerPoint slide show is played. He also shows how to customize the effect options by using the animations tab, which allows you to choose when the track starts and finishes, for how many slides, and at what volume. After watching the video, you should be able to include music in your PowerPoint to run in the background automatically without needing an external media player.
