Hi, my son is doing a presentation for school homework and we can't get a sound file to work in it. I googled and we followed instructions, but our MP3 file will not import. Error message is: The format of the selected file is not supported. What are we doing wrong?

There have been many reports of problems with sound in Impress presentations streching back ten years or more. You are welcome to take a look and see if any have solutions for you.
Search for mp3 at site:forum.openoffice.org

However since you have MacOS you may find it easier to create your presentation in Apple's Keynote since that's already installed on your Mac (or if not you can get it for free from the App Store). I know MP3 sound files work there. You'll need to learn how to use a new application, but this may take less time than solving the problem with Impress.

Q59: Can I exchange documents between OpenOffice and iWork, Apple's office suite?
