Can I Add Audio Per Slide in Canva?

Canva is an incredibly versatile and user-friendly graphic design platform that makes it easy to create stunning posters, presentations, logos, social media graphics and more. With an ever-growing library of templates, images and fonts, it’s quick and easy to create designs that stand out from the crowd.

One of the most powerful tools in Canva is the ability to add audio to your slides. This allows you to make your presentations come alive with sound effects, music or voiceovers – whatever you need to make your message pop.

Adding audio to a slide in Canva is incredibly straightforward. First, select the slide you want to add audio to by clicking on it in the left-hand menu.

Then click on the ‘Add Media’ button at the top of the page. You’ll be presented with a range of audio options – royalty-free music tracks from Canva’s library; an audio file from your computer; or a sound clip from YouTube or SoundCloud. Once you’ve selected your audio file, click ‘Open’ and it will appear on the slide.

You can then adjust its volume as necessary using the slider at the bottom right corner of the slide. You can also mute or loop it if needed by clicking on the drop down next to ‘volume’ and selecting either option.

It’s also possible to edit certain aspects of your audio file within Canva itself. For example, you can adjust its speed and pitch – great for creating sound effects – and even add filters such as reverb or echo.


So yes, Canva does offer a great way to add audio per slide in presentations – whether it’s a royalty-free track from their library; an audio file from your computer; or a sound clip from YouTube or SoundCloud. Furthermore, you can also edit certain aspects of your chosen audio file within Canva itself for added customisation.
