Playing Sound to Adjust animations

I'm trying to figure out a way to listen to the audio, and then use the sliders underneath to line up where I want them to fly in.  I'm new, and probably using the wrong terminology, so bear with me.  I've tried playing audio editor, but you have to close out before you can make changes to the slide.  Anyone have some ideas?  Or, do I need to just write down the times and do it manually?

Hi John

you could try adding cue points.  Preview the slide using the small play button at the bottom of the screen, then press the C key on your keyboard to add a cue point on the timeine.

I've recorded a quick Peek video to show you what I mean and here is a tutorial about adding cue points

The only way i can get any accuracy without having to play several times is to play in Audacity or MS movie maker (for video) and write down the exact times, then set them.

I find that with cue points, after 2 or 3 tries, I can get within about a quarter of a second, and then it's trial and error if I need anything more exact.
