Sound when doing course exercises

Sep 29, 2015

Hi, I'm wondering where I can turn on the mouse click sound, so when a user selects a field in my interactive exercises there is that particular sound.

Hi, Deb -- Have you had an opportunity to review this information on Adding Mouse Cursors? There is a section specifically on adding mouse-clicking sounds, as seen below:

Adding Mouse-Clicking Sounds

When the mouse reaches the end of its path, it can play a single-click or double-click sound, or you can omit the clicking sound altogether.

  1. Select the mouse object on the slide and go to the Format tab on the ribbon.
  2. Click NoneSingle, or Double.

Please let me know if that is what you had in mind or if you still need further assistance. :)

Hi, Deb -- My apologies for not clarifying. Per the documentation here, you will need to add the Mouse Cursor first, before you will be able to adjust the mouse-click sounds as described above. 

Here's how:

  1. On the slide where you want to insert a mouse cursor, go to the Insert tab.
  2. Click Mouse and choose a cursor style. It'll automatically appear on your slide.

Tip: Only one mouse cursor can be added to each slide, and it must be added to the base layer of the slide. Mouse cursors aren't supported on layers or slide masters.

Please let me know if you have any other questions! :)

Hi again,

I have already done what you suggested however, I can't see a major difference all that happens is the mouse symbol just floats down the screen.

Hi, Deb -- Thanks for your response. First, I wanted to note, when you reply via email, the information in your signature is displayed publicly here in the thread, so please feel free to use the Edit button beneath your post to remove those details if you wish. 

Next, I wanted to ask: are you referring to a screen recording by chance, rather than adding the mouse cursors directly? If so, you will not be able to add the sounds to a screen recording, and that is likely why you are not seeing the option to choose None, Single or Double (the sounds are associated with the clicks).

If you would like me to review your first itself, please feel free to use the Add Attachment button to share, and I will take a closer look for you.
