4. Add a sound effect Animation Options -> Enhancement -> Sound
5. Preview the sound to verify it works
7. Copy the presentation to Linux

No sound will play in Linux with Windows file or play in Windows with a Linux created file.

Moved windows file locally and sounds played. Moved file to another Windows machine, and sound did not play in preview.

This is specific to animations sounds. Someone is different about how we handle the animation sounds vs transition sounds that is causing this bug.
