PowerPoint allows you to add audio to your presentation. For example, you could add background music to one slide, a sound effect to another, and even record your own narration or commentary. You can then edit the audio to customize it for your presentation.
Previously, you also had the option to add clip art audio from Office.com, but this service has been discontinued.
Optional: Download our practice presentation.
