Save and try out your animation!
2. Fade in variations of text, one on top of the other plus magnify
You can add another animation to your objects to increase the intensity of the animation. For example, try adding a Magnify entrance effect to all three text boxes. Set the speed the same as the Fade In animation and place the animation in the task pane right after the Fade In. Set the Start to With Previous. You can see how it looks.
3. Typewriter text
You can make text appear letter by letter; to add to the effect, you can add a typewriter sound. You can see the animation here. Sorry, I couldn’t include the sound.
Follow these steps:
- In PowerPoint 2003, add a text box from the Drawing toolbar (in PowerPoint 2007 and 2010, go to Insert tab> Text Box), and type the text.
- Select the text box.
- On the Custom Animation task pane, choose Add Effect > Entrance > Appear. In 2010, choose the animation from the Add Animation drop-down list.
- In 2010, click the Animation Panebutton. Click the animation item in the task pane. Click the down arrow and choose Effect Options.
- On the Effect tab, choose By Letter from the Animate Text drop-down list.
- Set the delay between letters. I chose 0.3 seconds.
- From the Sound drop-down list, choose Typewriter and click OK.
