Download powerpoint music to iTunes music file

by bigpink / May 10, 2008 7:05 AM PDT

I have 2 powerpoint JPEG slide shows with accompanying audio (music). The .pps files are on my hard drive - not on a CD or DVD. I don't know what format the powerpoint music files are in.
I would like to separate the audio tracks from the slide show file so that I can download the music to iTunes and from there to my iPod.
Note 1: I am an experienced computer "user" but a novice when it comes to understanding the in's and out's of software and making it work for me. I need rather specific instructions if I you are going to help me with an answer to this question.
Note 2: I have a Dell Dimension 8200 running Win XP SP2

- Download and install audacity from
- Download and install lame also so it can make mp3's (details on the audacity site)
- Play the music and record it with audacity
- Save (the appropiate part of) the recording to mp3
- Import mp3 in iTunes

Most likely it can be done this way.
