Tips to Send a PowerPoint via E-Mail


1.       Send a PowerPoint with Audio via E-mail
Before we go on, we should learn something about how audio works in PowerPoint.

Usually, audio in WAV format will be embedded in PowerPoint while audio in MP3 or other file formats will be linked to PowerPoint. And more, sound files larger than 100 KB (i.e. anything but a short sound effect) will be linked to your presentation rather than embedded in it.

What is the difference between Linked and Embedded? Embedded means that when you move the PPT on your computer or e-mail it, audio will be moved together. When audio is linked, it will be lost if you move the PPT or e-mail it.

Then how to send a PowerPoint always with audio?
For wav audio which is greater than 100 KB, increase the 100 KB default up to 5 MB.
PowerPoint ->Tools -> Options->General (Link sound with file size greater than 5000 KB)

For other audio files
Copy the sound file and the PowerPoint presentation in a same folder (Short path is  recommended) and then reinsert the sound file to PowerPoint. Send the whole folder via E-mail.

2.       More Ways to Insert Audio to PowerPoint
The usually practice to insert audio to PowerPoint is
Insert sound to a slide :
PowerPoint -> Insert (Menu) -> Movies and sounds -> ...

Sometime you have one more option: Insert sound as slide transition
The audio will play as transition and will be embedded to the PowerPoint file. So when you move the presentation file, the music will not be lost.
PowerPoint -> Slide Show -> Slide Transition -> Modify Transition (Right Panel) -> Sound -> Other Sound

3.       Send a PowerPoint with Video via E-mail
Video is always linked to PowerPoint. So you should always to put the video and the PowerPoint presentation to a same folder (Short path is recommended). Insert the video in this folder to PowerPoint.

4.       Send a PowerPoint with Links Files via E-mail
If you have created hyperlinks to other documents to a PowerPoint file, just do not forget to
include linked documents and the presentation in a same folder. Then e-mail the folder.
 

5.       Send a PowerPoint that Opens Automatically in Mail
Save the PowerPoint presentation with PPS extension rather than with PPT extension.
PowerPoint -> Save as -> PowerPoint Slideshow (pps)
