Sound stops during the presentation in PowerPoint 2008 for Mac
  

Hi, i am a Mac OS X user and have installed Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac on the same. Related to my office, i have made a PowerPoint presentation with sounds and some movies as well. Every things is good, but in the meanwhile of the presentation, the sound stops itself. What i need is to make the sound play continuously during the entire presentation in PowerPoint 2008 for Mac. Do you guys have any idea how to do that? Please let me know. I appreciate all your help..

Re: Sound stops during the presentation in PowerPoint 2008 for Mac

You can add any sounds that are located on your computer, including sound files or songs from your music library. To play a soundtrack during a presentation, you can set a sound to continue playing as you move through the slides. Here is how to do that:-
  1. Add a sound to one slide.
  2. Click the sound icon on the slide.
  3. On the Formatting Palette, under Sound, on the Play pop-up menu, click Across slides.
  4. If you don't see the Formatting Palette, on the View menu, click Formatting Palette.

Some sound file formats, such as MP3 and MIDI, and files that are larger than the size set in your PowerPoint Preferences, are not embedded in the presentation when you insert them. Instead, they are linked from a location on your hard disk or the Internet. To define the file sizes for linked sound files, on the PowerPoint menu, click Preferences, and then click General.
