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.
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.

No problem animating my first text box, but cannot animate more the one on each slide.
You should be able to add animation to multiple objects and also more than one animation to any single object. Which version of PowerPoint are you using and what happens when you try to animate another object?
This was an old tip, so I just updated it to include instructions for PowerPoint 2010.
Thanks a lot 😀 it helped me to get the typewriter animation.

Didn’t understand how to do the typewriter effect. Also when i looked at the slide show the text variations weren’t showing up. When I left and looked at the slides the text variations were there.
Thank you so much for the tutorial. It’s very helpful! :))))

I would like to animate a text letter by letter but not using a pre-defined time, that is, I would like each letter appears when I click … Is it possible ? Thanks
I’m hoping this is for a game! You would have to make each letter a separate text box, as far as I can tell.
