    • Not much information here. Which version of PowerPoint, what the type of

      files are linked. How you linked them. Normally people record voice

      narrations they are wav files, and are embedded into the presentation, also

      one good idea is to put any linked files into the same folder as the

      presentation. Makes it a lot easier to move things around without breaking

      things.

I did embedd the files the first go around and seemed to work great however the size of the presentation was too large so I re-recorded the wav files and linked them, put them in the same directory as the presentation. Now I only get the narration on the first recorede slide. Should I re record the whole thing and embedd them or can I fix this issue?

    • The sound files should work embedded or linked. Not knowing how you inserted

      it is kind of hard to tell you what is wrong. You say the embedded file made

      your presentation to large. What is the filesize?

I wanted to put this on my website but it took a long time to load, my reason for going the embedded way. I am not sure how to link to the narration files but I'm in the process of going to each slide and inserting the wav file and perhaps that will give me a large file again but at least, and hopefully, work again.

    • You might want to look here for ways to reduce the file size.

      Why are my PowerPoint files so big? What can I do about it?

      http://www.rdpslides.com/pptfaq/FAQ00062.htm

      Are you putting your finished product on your web site as a .pps file? Or,

      are you publishing it to a web page?

      #6; Tue, 27 May 2008 02:46:00 GMT
    • Putting the presentation on you web site as a pps does not make it available

      to all viewers. You could publish your presentation as a web page. And

      upload that to your site. that way all the person needs to see the

      presentation is their internet browser. I'm sure that in upcoming versions

      of everything there will be options to view various products with whatever

      you have installed on your system. but until then you might want to look

      here, especially at the on-line example.

      Can you clarify what you mean by "My file size was about 175 MB after

      converting it to a PPS"? How did you "convert to PPS"?

      Generally, when you record narration from within PPT and specify the files

      to be linked, they're already linked to the appropriate sides. But since

      you're going in and adding them manually, you can use Insert|Movies and

      Sounds|Sound from File to get them into each slide. Since you want the WAVs

      to be linked, make sure you have a low number (maybe 50 or 100) set in

      Tools|Options|General "link sound files greater than XX kb."

      Since you're okay with linked files, and you're having to add them back in

      manually anyway, you might want to consider converting your WAVs to MP3s.

      MP3 can't be embedded in PPT (doesn't seem to be an issue in this case), but

      they're much much smaller than WAVs.

      I'm just tossing out ideas...

    • One of the reasons you may still be seeing the outline, you need to allow

      popup's for that site. Also if you could provide us with a link to your

      published website would really help in getting this fixed up.
