Adding Sounds to Animations



In the Custom Animation Task pane, double-click the animation to which you want to add a sound. (See step 1 of the preceding task if you need help opening this Task pane.)


PowerPoint opens the effect's associated dialog box. Click the down arrow next to the Sound field.


Click a sound.


Click OK to apply it to the effect.


To make your animation effects appear even livelier, you can add sound effects. For example, you can add a cash-register sound to an animated chart, or applause to a title. PowerPoint includes a variety of prerecorded sounds you can add to animations.
