Animation effects and sounds can add excitement to your presentations and help you emphasize key points while you deliver the slide show. This demo shows you ways to add these effects: by using the built-in animation effects in PowerPoint, by creating your own customized effects, and by adding sound.

Built-in effects are a good choice when you're pushed for time. As you move your pointer over the list of options, you see a live preview of how the animation will look on your slide. If you want to choreograph more complex effects, PowerPoint lets you choose from dozens of options to build unique visuals and sound. Watch the demo to learn how to add pizzazz to your presentations!
