Importing an embedded narration in PPT


B

blu4899

Hi,

I'm using MS PowerPoint 2003 and have a presentation with embedded
narration. I have edited some of the narration clips after exporting
them through the save-to-html trick. After I've edited the WAV files
externally, I'd like to get them back in as an embedded narration. I
can link them externally, but I don't like that; I would like to have
one PPT file I can send around without other files.
Is there any way to import external wav files to be an embedded
narration?

thanks,
blu

Try selecting your edited files as the slide transition sound for the slides
they apply to (which will, I think, replace the originally recorded sound with
the edited one. Embedded.)

Hello,

If none of the suggestions provided give you the functionality that you
were looking for or, if you (or anyone else reading this message) have
suggestions for to improve the narration recording (and re-recording)
feature in PowerPoint (or make it easier), don't forget to send your
feedback (in YOUR OWN WORDS, please) to Microsoft by either:

PREFERRED METHOD:

A) If you are using Microsoft's web-based, online newsreader for Office
communities
(http://www.microsoft.com/office/community/en-us/default.mspx?dg=microsoft.p
ublic.powerpoint), check to see whether or not the suggestion has been
submitted before (Show -> Suggestions for Microsoft) and, if so, add your
vote to the suggestion submission. If the suggestion has not been submitted
before, click on the "New" drop-down menu and choose "Suggestion for
Microsoft" from directly within the newsreader web page.

OR, NEXT BEST METHOD:

B) If you are using another newsreader (such as Microsoft Outlook Express),
submit your suggestion using your web browser at the following address:
http://register.microsoft.com/mswish/suggestion.asp

It's VERY important that, for EACH wish, you describe in detail, WHY it is
important TO YOU that your product suggestion be implemented. A good wish
submssion includes WHAT scenario, work-flow, or end-result is blocked by
not having a specific feature, HOW MUCH time and effort ($$$) is spent
working around a specific limitation of the current product, etc. Remember
that Microsoft receives THOUSANDS of product suggestions every day and we
read each one but, in any given product development cycle, there are ONLY
sufficient resources to address the ones that are MOST IMPORTANT to our
customers so take the extra time to state your case as CLEARLY and
COMPLETELY as possible so that we can FEEL YOUR PAIN.

IMPORTANT: Each submission should be a single suggestion (not a list of
suggestions).
