Fix: Powerpoint doesn’t play audio or video
PowerPoint presentations combine a variety of media into slideshows. Most PowerPoint users will probably add at least a little audio and video to make the presentations more interesting. However, PowerPoint doesn’t support every media format. So if the application isn’t playing audio and video in a presentation, that’s probably due to incompatible media formats or not having the required codecs for them.

You can do this using a sound file on your computer, choose from hundreds of sounds available through the clip organizer, or play tracks from an audio CD.

PowerPoint not only allows you to use sound, but allows you to customize sound options so you can play the sounds you want, the way that you want.
