You can now add an audio or video clip from our PSCC Databases to your PowerPoint presentation! Follow the steps on the tabs to the right to insert links that will play during your presentation.
You can use the links below to browse our music and video databases for songs, clips, or full length videos to use in your presentation. Our Find Media: Audio Collections Guide and Find Media: Streaming Video Guide also offer more options for searching for multimedia.
Embedding an audio clip in PowerPoint presentations is quick and easy if you have an audio file saved on your computer to use - instead of a clip in a Database.
Just click the tab at the top of your presentation, then click , select , and choose your file.
Click and drag the icon that appears in your PowerPoint to the location you prefer.
If asked, select "Start on Click."
To change the color of the icon, click the icon, then open the Format tab, then select the Color dropdown menu and choose your color. Save your presentation.
Note that the audio file may not play if you open your presentation on a different computer that does not have the same audio file saved in the same place. Be sure to check your presentation on another computer to make sure it works before you give your presentation.
Follow the directions in Step 4 to check your presentation and make sure your audio clip works.
