Transcript:Extract Sounds From PowerPoint 2010 Shows
Hi, I am Kostas Georgokitsos for About.com. Today I'll show you how to extract sounds from your PowerPoint presentation.
Change File Name to Extract Sounds From PowerPoint 2010 Shows
You do not need the PowerPoint program for this, but you do need to have an existing PowerPoint presentation that you want to extract sounds from. These sounds can be a narration or an audio clip. Go to the folder where you have saved the presentation, locate the presentation, right click on it and choose Rename. Don't change the name. Change the extension of the file from ".pptx" to ".zip" and press the "Enter" button on your keyboard. A window will open up, asking you if you accept the change. Click "Yes." The icon of the folder will change.
Use an Extraction Wizard to Extract Sounds From PowerPoint 2010 Shows
Right click on it and select "Extract All." An Extraction Wizard will appear. The Wizard will ask you for a folder to extract the files to. It will suggest by default to create a folder with the same name as the original file. Click Extract. After the extraction is complete, a new window with a number of new folders appears. Go to the folder named "ppt". Open it. You will see a folder named "Media." Open this one, too and you'll find all the extracted media files from your presentation, such as images, videos and the sounds, that you want.
Re-Convert the File When Extracting Sounds From PowerPoint 2010 Shows
To turn the presentation back into a ".pptx" file, right click on it, select rename and change the extension of the file from ".zip" to ".pptx".
