I have covered this before, but it keeps coming up. This week I created this quick tutorial for a client, so here it is in a bit more detail.

1. The only audio format that can be embedded into a PowerPoint presentation is a .wav

2. By default PowerPoint will only embedd a .wav file if it is under 100k (very small – generally less than 10 seconds)

3. You can raise the embeddable file size to 50 MB!


5. Go to the GENERAL tab

6. Change the 100 to 50000 (do not add a comma)

7. Done!
