If there is a voice recording in onenote can it be moved to power point? I can not get this to happen and different people for a project sent me their files and I need to get their recording into power point....please help! This is for a final grade
Welcome to

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you with this issue.

All we should have to do.. ( though you will have to do this for each recording)

Open one note.. right-click the audio file in OneNote and choose "Save As" to save it as a .WMA

Once it is saved as a wma .. you can then use the wma in powerpoint..

If you get stuck, or have any further questions please let me know!

in one note it is already saved as a WMA. i have tried to right click and say save as but, when I do that it can only save as all files.

Thanks for replying.

What version of powerpoint do you have?

2003, 2007, 2010 ?

And when you add the sound file to powerpoint, what exact procedure are you using?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i have power point 2010. the procedure that i am using is clicking on the insert tab clicking audio and saying audio form file and when i choose the file it says that the WMA is not compatible with power point

Wma is compatible with powerpoint, since wma is a windows format.. The link below shows that it is compatible

So, there must be some issue that is preventing powerpoint from understanding the file.

Can you take one of the sound files.. Right click it, click properties.

And tell me the full Type of full it calls itself on the general properties tab..
