Add Sound to Documents

No multimedia experience is complete without sound. When you add sound to a presentation, you involve another one of the viewer’s senses, which makes the experience more complete. You can use sounds in a variety of ways, including with buttons, when a page opens, or when a page closes. Acrobat now supports sounds for all popular formats, including MP3.

When you add a sound file to an Acrobat document, you can choose whether or not to embed the file. When you embed a sound file in a document, it’s saved with the document. When a sound file isn’t embedded with a document, Acrobat records the path to the sound file and the file plays when the trigger you specify occurs. If you move a sound file that isn’t embedded in a document to a different folder on your computer, or to a different URL, it won’t play. Adding a sound file to a document you plan to display on the Internet would result in an extremely long download for users with a slow Internet connection, unless the sound file is extremely small. Alternatively, you can include the path to a streaming audio file on a website. When you create a PDF document and add sound files for a multimedia file you’re creating for distribution on CD or DVD disc, file size is no longer a concern.
