How can I have a sound file play throughout a presentation?

To have a sound file play throughout the presentation:

  • Place it on the slide where you want it to start playing;
  • In the Tasks pane, click Slide Transition;
  • On the Sound dropdown list (under Modify transition), select Other Sound.... A dialog box will open.
  • Browse to the desired file and open it.

The sound will continue playing until another sound file is opened.

NOTE: If the presentation is moved, the link to the sound file will be lost. See this question for more information.
