Issues and Problems:
– I hadn’t checked the PPT slides well. Some animations appeared in wrong order. I usually make the audio the first animation on a slide. However, if I put an audio animation onto slide that has already other animations, the audio will be the last one in order. I have to change the order so that the audio would be the first animation. I was ill-prepared.
