Slide with overlapping sounds when the Viewlet plays

Postby Tim » Fri Aug 24, 2007 1:00 pm

Why do I have a slide with overlapping sounds when the Viewlet plays?

The following objects can have an associated sound: Slide, Balloon, Note, Text Box or Shape. When a sound is associated with an object, the sound will start playing when the object is displayed. If two or more objects are displayed at the same time, sounds can overlap.

Additionally, a sound can be played via an event associated with an object. For example, an image object could have a sound played when it’s clicked on. All of this means that there are a number of ways in which sounds can overlap.

If a slide has an attached sound, you will see a small speaker icon at the bottom of the slide in the thumbnail view. If it has an associated event, you will a lightning bolt.

If the “Attached Sound Icons” menu option is enabled in View menu, you will see a small speaker icon below any slide objects that have an attached sound.

If the “Event Icons” menu option is enabled in the View menu, you will see a lightning bolt next to any object with associated events.

To determine which object’s sounds are overlapping, you will need to look at the Attached Sounds and Events associated with the slide and any elements on the slide.

To remove all sounds from a slide, perform the following actions.

Click on the slide
Click the Attach Sound icon on the Context Toolbar
Click the Red X on the Sound Dialog to remove the sound.
Click on Events icon on the Context Toolbar
Click each tab if there is a Play Sound action, click the Red X to remove it.

Repeat these steps for each object on the slide.
