Adding Sounds to Power Point

Many Windows and Mac programs use the same file types; this makes it easier to use and view work.

Some examples: (don’t worry too much about this; if you search “sounds” you’re probably going to get what you need)

MP3 (.mp3), MIDI (.midi), MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and QuickTime (.qt, .mov), Real Audio/Video (.ra, .ram), Wave Form Audio (.wav), Windows Media Audio and Video (.wma,)

Search by instrument, ambient style, mood, etc

Preview; download track if desired.

When ready, click on link to download selected file.

The best option is to right-click before the download, rename file and set location. If necessary, the file can be renamed and saved after the download.

By giving files generic names, the students are allowed to apply their own meaning to them.

1 Go to web source: *free educational use, but not for posting on websites (read legalese) (seems to be the friendliest in usage allowances) * educator accounts are not free

5. Go to downloads; change file name to project name and number, i.e., Explorers.#

Move to appropriate file by dragging or “save as”.

By giving files generic names, it allows the students to apply their own meaning to them.
