We have been sent in a whole CD of free sound effects by Alan McKinney from Freesfx.co.uk
With so many to choose from we have sifted through the sound effects and have selected those that we think are most appropriate to use in your presentations.
You can find more sound effects on Alan’s website.
These sound effects are only available in wav format (but it has the advantage that you can embed them in PowerPoint).
