When Would I Add Audio To Google Slides?

The possibilities are endless! Anything with text can have audio. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • Read the directions to your students
  • Assessments: Read the questions and/or answers
  • Text: Read the story to your students
  • Add pictures for beginning sounds, add audio to them.
  • Labeling: Make a labeling activity and add audio to each label.

How To Add Audio To Google Slides

You will need a couple steps, but it’s easy once you get used to it. The first thing to do is decide what audio you’d like. I find that making a list helps me to remember what to add. I like to use Online voice recorder. It’s pretty easy to record and save your voice.

The next step is to add your audio files into Google Drive, and make sure that the sharing settings are correct. Otherwise, your students will need to ask permission to listen to the file. (By the way, the sharing settings aren’t as hard as they seem, you just gotta remember to do them!)

Here’s a quick video to show you how to add audio to Google Slides.
