Project Description

Dear Sir/Madam

This project is for someone who has experience in developing ‘navigation buttons’ in Visual Basic for PowerPoint (2002) presentations. I have posted this project before on two occasions but both developers were unsuccessful in completing it; however, I did make partial payment for their considerable effort.

Although both developers successfully completed some of the additional buttons I asked for they encountered a problem that it may not be possible to solve. However, I would very much like it to be solved if at all possible. The problem is as follows:

All of my presentations contain animated sequences, many of which contain sound files.

These presentations contain rudimentary buttons; one of which is to pause the presentation when an animated sequence is running.

The sound files are ‘embedded’ into the PowerPoint file as this is the only way they can be easily distributed.

When the animated sequence starts, the sound file starts. When the pause button is pressed the animation pauses and the sound stops. However, when the animated sequence is started again the sound file starts from its starting position and not from the point when it was paused.

When the sound file is ‘linked’ to the PowerPoint presentation, this does not happen. However, as mentioned, I want the sound files to be ‘embedded’ and not ‘linked’.

I have searched the internet and have found some forums where people have been asking the same question but with no solution.

I attach a typical PowerPoint presentation with an embedded file.

Following this I will post another job for some additional buttons that I would like but my requirements will depend upon the outcome of this request.

Should you wish to give a quotation for this work please be certain that it is possible to do and that it is possible to do so in the 2002 version of PowerPoint.

Yours faithfully

Richard Tyler
