I hear that it is possible in some verison of MS Office it is possible for the speaker presenting a slide show to be able to see a screen with their speakers notes on it, but the output monitor disply from the laptop to the projector will jsut show the slide show.

Is there any truth to this? and if so, which versions of office have it and how do I do it?

Firstly, make sure the laptop is using the external and internal displays as separate monitors (i.e. not both showing the same image). On the settings tab in display properties, select the second display and select "extend my windows desktop onyo this monitor".

Then in Powerpoint, select "Set up show" from the "Slide show" menu.
Under "Multiple monitors", tick "show presenter view". Click OK.

Now start your show. One screen shows your slide show, the other a smaller slide, notes, and basic navigation controls.

This works in Powerpoint 2003, I don't recall which version introduced this.
