    Hello,I just made a presentation using my desktop computer,and MS PowerPoint program.I am able to listen to the embedded audio music file,but when I download the presentation to my iPad2,it will not play the sound.
    Is there any app that will correct this problem?
    Thanks

    Alberto

    Microsoft has released a PowerPoint app for the iPad. While you won't be able to create, edit, or present the files without an Office 365 account, you should be able to view/play them.

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/microsoft-powerpoint-for-ipad/id586449534?mt=8


    I don't know if your sound will work with the app, but Microsoft's app should have highest compatibility. Another words, if it doesn't work in Microsoft's app it's probably not going to work anywhere.

    Though you could also try importing the file into Apple's Keynote app and see what happens, if you already own it.

    I am using what is offered to me ,which is Open in Dropbox or One Drive.
    Today I am using the PowerPoint app for iPads,that I just installed,but still I have no sound in any of these apps.
    Thanks for the answer

    The sound works now,in my desktop,after I found out that Microsoft PowerPoint will not allow you to use mp3s (???),but there is a way around to fool the program into believing I am using a wav file ( how retrograd this is,and coming from the " innovators" at Microsoft!!!)

    Anyways,I installed the app you suggested,but I still can not make the sound to work on my iPad.
    I have to get to know the app yet though.......
    Thanks

    I'm afraid I'm out of ideas then.

    Good luck. I hope you figure it out soon.

    What is the file format of the audio? That could be the factor. I know the iPad won't handle a .wav file. Another app you might try is the Kingsoft Office suite app. It's free and will run MS Office files - don't know about the audio though.

    The format is Mp3,and,after I learned Microsoft will not allow tthe use the Mp3 format ( ???) I found the way around it reserching the internet.
    I will investigate what you suggested,
    Thanks and regards
