Q. How do I add audio to a PowerPoint presentation?


Try this technique to record your audio (the settings tools will test your audio is OK).  

PowerPoint Narration – YouTube   Don’t link the narration file – it needs to be embedded.

(Radio quality is fine.) 


If you are using Windows 2010 and later it is possible to export your narrated presentation as a video: Microsoft Guide

Once you have a .wmv file this can be uploaded through MyMedia

If you have followed the guidance, but continue to have problems with your audio, please visit the IT Help Desk.
