You got a PowerPoint slideshow embedded with a cool piece of music. You want to extract the sound out of the PowerPoint file so that you can keep it single and for reuse elsewhere. How to make it with ease? Here follows 2 solutions to audio extracting from a PowerPoint slideshow, one general, one specific.
* General: Export PowerPoint to HTML to Extract Embedded Sound Files
* Specific: Extract and Convert PowerPoint Sounds with a Moyea PPT Converter
Let’s look at the general method first.
Solution 1: Export PowerPoint to HTML to Extract Embedded Sound Files
Applies to: PowerPoint 2007, PowerPoint 2003 and earlier
A common practice for extracting an embedded sound in a slideshow is to export PowerPoint to Web Page (HTM, HTML). This will generate a new folder including the sound file and other parts of the PowerPoint slideshow in separate. Then you can take out the music file and relocate it wherever you prefer. Now read on for the details:
Note – Do not double click on the file icon of the slideshow to open it, for PowerPoint show (often in *.pps, *.ppsx) is read-only and not editable.
The file extension changes accordingly to .htm in the File Name field. For example, if your slideshow name is "Happy New Year 2010", the file extension will change from "Happy New Year 2010.pps" to "Happy New Year 2010.htm".
To get embedded sounds out of a slideshow, exporting PowerPoint to HTML is the general solution. What if you want to transform the sound from WAV to MP3? Here comes the specific solution:
