How to add audio in your PowerPoint presentation on Mac


Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation program which was specially designed to provide visuals for group presentations within business organizations, but has come to be very widely used in many other communication circumstances, both in business and beyond. Microsoft has added many additional features and modes of operation and has made PowerPoint available for Mac users. Beside adding texts or images to slides, now you may also add or delete audio to your PowerPoint presentations. Here we will provide you a short user guide that will help you to add music in your PowerPoint slides on Mac.

How to add audio to a single slide on your Mac?

If you want to add audio to a specific slide of your PowerPoint Presentation, follow these steps:

  • In “Normal” view, select the slide and then click Insert > Audio.
  • Click “Audio Browser” to add audio from iTunes or “Audio from File” to add an audio clip from your computer.




  • Now, select the audio clip.
  • In the “Audio Format” tab, select the audio options you want.
  • If you wish to change or modify the standard audio file icon, use the picture format buttons in the “Audio Format” tab to add a frame, border, or other formatting effect to the audio icon.
  • Finally, you may preview the slide. To do so, on the slide, select the audio icon and then click “Play/Pause” below the audio icon.

How to add audio that plays during your entire presentation?
