Audio in Presentations

Post by MRPockets » Tue Apr 03, 2018 5:01 am

Is audio within PPTX/PPT files supported? I'm trying to find a replacement for PowerPoint for a Linux system and it looks like Softmaker Presentations is the best option but I can't seem to get audio files (such as a background song during a timed slideshow) to work.

I found an option to add audio, but even then, I can't seem to get any playback.

Audio is currently only supported under Windows and on the Mac. A sound support for Presentations for Linux is on the wish list.

SoftMaker Office is better being BIG in Linux, than very small or unknown in the Windows and Mac World

there is a saying: Better to be the Head of a Mouse, than the tail of an Elephant

Linux should be your main concern.....and I don't mean to make it Open Source and Free...you deserve to get paid for this amazing Office Suite...but it needs to rival PowerPoint...Sound and Video are basic features.

Thanks, I've reinforced the request for audio in Presentations.

Hi. Is the current status still the same? Is there any workaround that I can use?

Also, if I would create a presentation with an audio file embedded in it and would save it as a PPTX file and play it on a Microsoft Office on Windows, will it play?

Yes, in that case you will be able to play that audio in PowerPoint also.
