Could you tell me how to get the drumroll.wav audio file in animation timeline?I am very grateful.

@oscarstar,
Thank you for posting the query. You can extract audio contents from the presentation using Aspose.Slides as shown below:

Presentation presentation = new Presentation(dataPath + "animation audio.pptx");
for (int i = 0; i < presentation.getAudios().size(); i++)
{
    IAudio audio = presentation.getAudios().get_Item(i);
    if(audio.getContentType() == "audio/x-wav")
    {
        File audioFile = new File(dataPath + "audio_" + i + ".wav");
        OutputStream outputStream = new FileOutputStream(audioFile);
        IOUtils.copy(audio.getStream(), outputStream);
    }
}

API Reference: IAudio interface

If the issue persists, please clarify your requirments.

Thank you for your reply.I hope to find the file or relation in the timeline animation collection.Please review the code below:
Presentation presentation = new Presentation(dataPath + “animation audio.pptx”);
IBehaviorCollection collection = presentation.getSlides().get_Item(0).getTimeline().getMainSequence().get_Item(0).getBehaviors();
for (int i = 0; i < collection.getCount(); i++) {
// todo: find the command effect and get the audio setting
}
I can’t find the audio file or relation in the collection or any where.Could you help me to find the relation of the audio and animation effect?Thanks a lot.

@oscarstar,
Unfortunately, I have not found a way to extract audio from the slide timeline. There seems to be no corresponding feature. I logged the issue with ID SLIDESJAVA-38590 in our tracking system. Our development team will investigate such a possibility. I will inform you of any progress.

Any progress?

@oscarstar,
I’ve requested an estimated time to implement such a feature from our development team. We will let you know as soon as possible.

Would it be possible to add the feature? We really need this one.

@oscarstar
We will conduct a detailed study and try to include this feature in the near future. I’ll let you know as soon as I get the ETA from the development team.

It’s very kind of you, It means a lot to me.

@oscarstar,
Please try using the following code snippet with Aspose.Slides 22.8:

Presentation presentation = new Presentation("demo.pptx");
try {
    ISlide slide = presentation.getSlides().get_Item(0);

    // Gets the effects sequence for the slide
    ISequence effectsSequence = slide.getTimeline().getMainSequence();

    for (IEffect effect : effectsSequence)
    {
        if (effect.getSound() == null)
            continue;

        // Extracts the effect sound in byte array
        byte[] audio = effect.getSound().getBinaryData();
    }
} finally {
    if (presentation != null) presentation.dispose();
}

Awesome! You are my hero!!!

We cannot distinguish between [no sound] in slide 2 and [stop the previous sound] in slide 3. Can you give us some guidance?

@oscarstar,
In the sample presentation you provided, I see Spin/Effect/Sound option equals [Stop Previous Sound] on slide 2 with a rectangle and Pulse/Effect/Sound option equals [No Sound] on slide 3 with a hexagon. Could you please confirm that this is what you mean?

Please review the file in this package. You can click the first button to playing sound. You can click the last button to stop the playing sound. Because the last button use [Stop Previous Sound] option.

Can I get the [Stop Previous Sound] value or enum through our effect api or property?

@oscarstar,
