PowerPoint Sound Clips

Hi guys

I made a movie from slides in PowerPoint (Office2013) and I want to add some sound but can’t seem to find any sound clips. BTW I run windows 8.1

MS has a “sound.exe” to add sound to any Office program but it doesn’t work. The executable goes thru the install ok but still I have no sounds and I don’t know where this exe does the installation, if any, because the installation it’s so fast and small. On PP I have enabled the “play with sound etc.” box

Any ideas for any sound clips? (The slides are from my dog)

If you mean the insert function on PP it asks to select where my audio clip is which I dont have any. I was asking if anyone knows a good source to download one.

In addition what happens when the audio clip is longer / shorter than my video?

Gosh, just search for sound clips...there are a zillion of them out there, some free, some for a fee.

With an audio editing program like Audacity you can loop a clip, shorten it, merge clips, etc, to get the length you want.

Some/most of the video editing programs can also manage audio.
