How do you achieve this result?

Explore Fonts: Bell MT

Explore Fonts: Bell MT

In 1788, Richard Austin created Bell, a serif typeface for the British Letter Foundry. Since then, this typeface went through an amazing journey. The typeface faded after its initial popularity with newspaper and magazine printers. Bell did find more favor in the United States during the 19th and the 20th centuries, and it was revived in 1931 by Monotype Corporation. Bell MT became a popular typeface, right up there along with Baskerville and Bodoni. Bell MT also made the transition from analog to digital. It gained popularity and wide acceptance when Microsoft bundled Bell MT as part of its Microsoft Office installations.

We look at Bell MT, a serif font family created in 1788.

Format Tab for Audio Clips in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

When you select an inserted audio clip in PowerPoint 2016, you see two contextual Audio Tools tabs: Format and Playback.

Trim Audio Clips in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Once you insert an audio clip into your presentation, you may find that it is too long, or there may be parts in the clip that you don't want the audiences to hear. Or, maybe you just need a small bit to play, like the sound of that trumpet blowing! Although you can scrub the clip using the Player Controls bar to ascertain where you want the clip to begin and end, that option may become monotonous and inaccurate. Additionally, it also looks very unprofessional if you try scrubbing an audio clip right in front of your audience. Fortunately, PowerPoint's Trim Audio option can make this easy for you. Follow these steps to explore how you can trim an audio clip right inside PowerPoint 2016.

Fade Effect for Audio Clips in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Insert an audio file within your PowerPoint slide, and choose to play it either with a click or set it to play automatically. Whichever option you choose, some files can sound loud and unexpected! Have you not experienced the sudden scare or shock when a shrill voice interrupts an almost silent environment? Rather than shake the soul of your audiences, you can use PowerPoint's fade options to add a gradual increase in the volume of your audio files. PowerPoint provides both Fade In and Fade Out effects that you can add to the beginning and end of your audio clips. These fade options make your audio clips sound smoother and more subtle.

Animating Faux Backgrounds with PowerPoint Morph

One such scenario in which Morph can be used is with slide backgrounds rather than slide objects in the foreground. Now PowerPoint does not allow you to animate slide backgrounds, but Morph is technically not an animation, it’s a transition! Even then, you can use faux backgrounds (a full slide image placed beneath all other slide objects, but still over the slide background) to cook up some magic.

Animate faux backgrounds with the PowerPoint Morph transition.
