To create this animtion, follow these steps:
a text box from the Drawing toolbar (in PowerPoint 2007, go to Insert
tab> Text Box), and type your text. Center justify itthe text by
clicking Center on the Formatting toolbar. (In PowerPoint 2007,
right-click the text box and choose Center from the mini toolbar.)
- Click the text box's outline and copy it to the Clipboard. Paste it two times onto the slide.
the three text boxes apart from each other. Eventually, you'll place
them on top of each other, but it's much easier to select them when
they're separated. Notice that I have a plain white slide and one word.
the properties of the text to create variations. I used 96, 72, and 48
point text, with light gray, dark gray, and black colors. Of course, if
you want a different effect, you can do something different.

the first text box and choose Add Effect> Entrance> Fade. (If you
don't see the Fade animation, click More Effects to find it.) Set the
Speed to fast. Leave the Start as On Click (the default).
the second text box and choose Add Effect> Entrance> Fade. Again
set the Speed to fast, but this time set the Start to After Previous.
soon as the second text box comes in, you want the first one to fade
out. So select the first text box again, and choose Add Effect>
Exit> Fade. (You may need to choose More Effects to find it.) Set
the Speed to Very Fast and the Start to After Previous. (I discovered
by trial and error that I wanted the Speed set to Very Fast; otherwise,
you wait too long for the third text box to come in.)
you want the third text box to fade in so select it and choose Add
Effect> Entrance> Fade. Set the Start to After Previous and the
Speed to Very Fast.
- Finally, you want the second
text box to fade out, leaving just the third text box. Select it, and
choose Add Effect> Exit> Fade. Set the Start to After Previous
and the Speed to Fast.
Note: You can
always change the order of your animations by selecting an item in the
Custom Animation task pane and dragging it to a new location or using
the Re-order buttons at the bottom.

into slide show view or click the Play button in the task pane.

Arrange group> Align drop-down list> Align Middle.)
Save and try out your animation!
Fade in variations of text, one on top of the other plus magnify
can add another animation to your objects to increase the intensity of
the animation. For example, try adding a Magnify entrance effect to all
three text boxes. Set the speed the same as the Fade In animation and
place the animation in the task pane right after the Fade In. Set the
Start to With Previous. You can see how it looks.

can make text appear letter by letter; to add to the effect, you can
add a typewriter sound. You can see the animation here. Sorry, I
couldn't include the sound.

the animation. I had the following problem -- there was no clicking
sound for the last letter. That might not bother you, but it bothered

word and making it the same color as the background (so that it was
invisible). This worked!
