    I have hyperlinked to a .wav file in an MS Word 2007 document, and the sound file plays without opening a media player.

    Problem is the sound file is 10mins long, and I have no way of controlling the .wav file once I have activated the hyperlink.

    Pressing escape stops the sound, but I cannot pause or rewind.

    The hyperlink seems to be opening the sound file as an 'embedded' object that I have no control over.

    During a presentation, I need to be able to pause the sound or even rewind it.

    Why doesn't MS Word allow me to open the hyperlinked sound file in a media player?

    Can you help?

    Berserk.
