Can I format or compile my PowerPoint presentations to automatically run in a showroom or kiosk, and if so, how? Yes, you can and that is much easier than you imagine.
First create your slideshow like any other presentation. Add your graphics, text, animations and transitions (between slides). If you have animations that play across multiple slides, you must also set the timing before compiling the presentation for a kiosk.
Consider also the audio. Do you want music, verbal narration or both? Most professional presentations use both (but necessarily at the same time). However, some play soft music in the background while the narrator talks about the music. In any case, this is another area where timing is crucial. Of course, the narrator's voice should follow the text on the slide. It's fine if the narrator's speech is more detailed than the headlines and bullet points of the slide. However, it is not okay for the narrator to talk about the team while the "Finances" slide is displayed.
Add background music to the entire presentation
This is the simplest of all steps.
. 1 Select Insert> Audio> Audio on my PC
. 2 The Insert Audio dialog box opens, displaying a list of the audio files in your music library.
. 3 Click the music file you want to play in the background of your slideshow, and then click the Paste button.
. 4 PowerPoint places the audio icon (looks like a speaker) in the middle of the slide. Click on the slide and drag it anywhere you do not notice.
. 5 While the Audio icon is selected, a new menu item called Audio Tools appears with two new tabs named Format and Playback.
. 6 The Format tab is all about aesthetics. So, click through the different features and choose a style that suits your project.
. 7 The Playback tab offers several options for customizing how your audio file works with your presentation. For example, in the Audio Styles group, select Play in Background .
