Yes, Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 allows you to boost the entertainment quotient of your presentation by selecting just a few options from the menu that can completely change the very look of your presentation. Never mind if you haven’t ever done it; here are the easy steps that you can follow to animate text in presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint 2007.

If you are working on a Windows XP-based PC, this is what you can do:

1. Open Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.
2. On your slide, select the text box that you want to animate.
3. Click the “Animation” option from the menu.
4. Roll your mouse over the “Animate” option that you want to use. You should see a preview of the animation.

You can set the amount of time you want to pass before the animation starts.
8. If you want to add sound to your animation, click the “Transition Sound” option and roll over any of the sound options in the drop down menu to hear a preview.
