Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Slide Transition Sounds

Adding sound effects to slide transitions in PowerPoint is a decision that needs so much thought because a sound playing with every slide transition can unnecessarily distract your audience.

Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Slide Transition Sound

Sound effects that play along with slide transitions are one of those small touches that can add interest or be pesky.
