Insert Music and Sound from Files

Sound or music files can be saved on your computer in many formats that can be used in PowerPoint 2007, such as MP3 or WAV files. You can add these types of sound files onto any slide in your presentation. However, only WAV type sound files can be embedded into your presentation.
