Insert Audio (Sound) in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Insert Audio (Sound) in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Sounds come in so many file types: MP3, WMA, or WAV files are just the common types that you can insert in PowerPoint slides. These sound files automatically embed into your presentation; this means that you no longer have to worry about linked files getting misplaced or lost like you had to in previous versions of PowerPoint. Even then, it is a good practice to keep your sound files in the same folder in which you save your PowerPoint 2016 presentation even before you insert them, as we show you in the following steps.

But in PowerPoint 2010 and later versions, this option is no longer available. However, there is a workaround to make a video play across slides, as explained in this tutorial.

Are You a Pusher or a Puller?: by Ally Yates

Are You a Pusher or a Puller?: by Ally Yates

Persuasion and influence are essential skills if you run a business – but unfortunately, many of us misunderstand what this means. In a small study with 100 staff in a manufacturing business, the most common answer to the question: “What does influence or persuasion at work mean to you?”, an overwhelming 76 people answered: “Getting other people to do what I ask.” What this demonstrates is a lack of understanding of both the scope of persuasion and the opportunity for using different influencing strategies. It also illustrates the lamentable fact that most of us are convinced by our own sense of rightness and that our ideas are the best.

Picture Copyrights

July 21, 2017

Picture Copyrights

At one extreme is a presentation that is bereft of any visual content, and the other extreme is a set of slides that have all visuals and almost no text. Yes, we do live in a world of extremes! We are not advocating which is a better approach, but contemporary presenters almost always make sure that they include many visuals on their slides. The adage, a picture is worth a thousand words is popular, and yet the truth of that statement may not hold good in at least one scenario, and that is all about where the visuals originated?
