Audio
Sound files can be inserted for one slide only or to play for a
selected number of slides.
Audio can be used in many ways:
to provide background music
to add sound effects when
slides change or objects
appear
to add a recorded voice over
or commentary.
The sound file appears as a speaker icon. You can hide the
speaker icon behind an image or a box that is the same
colour as the background.

Hyperlinks
Hyperlinks can be attached to pictures or words. When the
user clicks on them they can:
open documents or web pages
go to a different place in the
presentation.
This lets the user move through the pages in any way that
they choose, and so makes it interactive.
