Remove Bookmarks from Audio Clips in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Once you add Bookmarks to an audio clip, you may want to edit or remove one or more Bookmarks altogether. In PowerPoint, you can't edit a Bookmark. For example, you cannot change the time position of your Bookmark from 30 seconds to 28 seconds. To achieve this change, you have to delete the earlier Bookmark, and then add a new Bookmark on the time position that you want.

Add Bookmarks for Audio Clips in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

One of the very important abilities in PowerPoint 2016 lets you play your audio files from a certain point within the clip? Bookmarks in PowerPoint are similar to the conventional bookmarks you place within the pages of a book you read. In the same way that you can easily access a particular page with the help of a bookmark, the Bookmark option within an audio clip becomes an indicator of the position you want to play the clip from.

Audio Styles in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

When you select an audio clip in PowerPoint 2016, you will see two extra contextual tabs on the Ribbon. One of these tabs is the Audio Tool Playback tab that provides options to configure properties that define how your inserted audio will play: whether it will play automatically, or will it play audio across slides? Let's assume that you want your audio to play as a background score across multiple slides. Typically you would have to make four separate choices, but PowerPoint 2016's Audio Styles feature lets you automatically apply these four settings at once!

Advanced Eyedropper Options in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

We have already explored the Eyedropper tool in PowerPoint 2016 that lets you sample colors from any object within your PowerPoint slide and use that same color as a fill or outline for a shape. But what do you do if the color you want to use exists on a web page, your desktop wallpaper, or anywhere else? The technique to capture a color from outside PowerPoint is little different. In this article, we will explore how you can copy a color from somewhere outside PowerPoint and use it as the fill and outline color of a text.

Wondershare Filmora Scrn: The Indezine Review

Although video continues to be a powerful medium to distribute content and spread awareness, it’s not always easy to create quality content, and share it on sites such as YouTube, especially when you need to record a gaming session on your computer, or even a Skype video session, or a webinar. What can be more confusing? The fact that there are a thousand programs out there that promise everything under the sun, but once you start using them, you wished there was something better available. Well, it does look like you should explore Wondershare’s Filmora Scrn.

Sound Across Specific Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Sound Across Specific Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Once you add a sound track, such as a music clip, to your PowerPoint presentation, you can let the inserted audio span across all your slides from the first one to the last by selecting the Play Across Slides option. That's great if you need the same music playing on all your slides. But what if you want the music to play only across some successive slides? What if you want the music to play from slide 1 to 12, and let all subsequent slides play without any music? Or you may want to add another audio clip for the next set of slides? Either way, it is possible to limit the number of slides that your music will play across.

Sound Across Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Sound Across Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

After inserting an audio file, such as a music file within your PowerPoint presentation, do you want to play this sound track across slides without any interruption when you move from one slide to another? Firstly, if a live speaker is spearheading the presentation, then you don't want to add a sound that spans across slides. Why? Because then the sound will distract the audience, and also the speaker. However, if you are showing a sequence of slides that includes pictures and no live presenter is required to speak to the audience, then adding a sound across slides may be a great idea. Even then, a soothing background music score playing across your presentation slides can be a good fit. Stay away from loud or jarring tracks.
