Are you searching for a way to insert music or audio into a PDF file? This can be useful for a PDF slideshow or presentation because it makes it more interesting and interactive. Luckily, you can easily add audio to PDF files with Adobe® Acrobat®. In this article, we'll discuss how to add music to a PDF by using Adobe Acrobat.

What you'll need: the music or audio file you want to use (any format that is compatible with Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional) and Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional installed on your computer.

Steps for Adding Music/Audio to PDF in Adobe® Acrobat®

  • Select the PDF page that you want to add music to.
  • Select the Sound Tool by navigating to Tools>Advanced Editing> Sound Tool. Specify an area in the PDF that will play the music/audio when selected.
  • In the Content Settings section, click the radio button to choose the music file you want to add to the PDF. Select the music you need by browsing your local folder.
  • Customize the active area. "Use No Poster" is the default setting which means you play the music by clicking on the active area, which has a border around it. "Create Poster from File" means you can customize the active area with an image, which of course, will require extra effort.
  • Once you are done, click OK to complete the process of adding audio to your PDF file.
