January 21, 2022

Welcome to WPS Official Academy to check the contents of Typewriter effect in WPS Office PowerPoint.

The Typewriter effect is one of the amazing animations to make a perfect presentation. So how can we make a typewriter effect? Let’s have a try step by step.

If you want to make a vintage typewriter look, we recommend going with a Courier New font in black.

1. Insert a text box and input the content that you need.

2. Set the font size as needed, and then set font style and font color.

3. Then set the animations for the text. Select the text box, navigate to the Animations tab, and choose Appear.

4. Click Custom Animation to pop up a Custom Animation pane on the right.

5. Select the animation corresponding to the text, click the drop-down button, and click Effect Options to pop up a dialog.

6. In the Sound drop-down menu, we select Typewriter.

In the Animation Text drop-down menu, we select By Letter.

And set 0.10 Seconds Delayed Between Letters.

Then you can show the slide to view the results. With these steps, you are able to set typewriter effect quickly and freely. Did you get it?
