Sandy, from Canyon, called with a question about a Powerpoint that does not play the sound in the presentation. Someone else made the powerpoint, and sent it to her on a CD ROM disk.
The problem is that the sound files are not actually "embedded" into the presentation, instead, Powerpoint uses a hyperlink to the sound file. The link in the presentation may be referring to a location other than the CD ROM disk.
So, here's the Microsoft way to fix this: Change the setting that determines whether or not the sound file is embedded (made part of the powerpoint file itself). Sound (or image) files under the specified threshhold size will be embedded, and those larger than the threshhold will be hyperlinked.

Google Docs Option
Carl, from Bemidji, called to suggest Google Docs for presentations. Google Docs lets you compose the presentation right in your web browser, and then you can play it anywhere you have access to the web. You can even use Google Docs to share/collaborate with other users on the creation of the presentation.
Learn more about Google Docs on the Google website.
