How to Advance Slides Automatically in PowerPoint

Are you lazy like me and feel that clicking your mouse to change slides in PowerPoint 2007 is not a good use of your time? Maybe not!

But maybe you just want a series of slides to advance automatically while you talk to your PowerPoint deck.  Well with PowerPoint 2007 it is easy.
1) Select the slides you want to have automatically advance
2) In the Ribbon, make sure you are on the “Animations” tab
3) Look to the far right hand side, and make sure you check “Automatically After”
4) Beside that checkbox, enter the number of seconds you want to the slide wait before it automatically transitions to the next.


Simple as that!  While you are there, you can also change the transition – whether you want a fade, dissolve, wipe, push and cover, or stripes and bars – just choose your favorite from the transition gallery!


"To keep the animation and voice in sync on playback, a technician that I've been working with at Microsoft support mentioned your product [Acoolsoft PPT to DVD Pro] to me as an alternative. "
