There are a ton of PPT-to-Flash converters. If you Google PowerPoint to Flash Converter, you'll turn up a bunch. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=powerpoint+to+flash+converter&aq=f&oq=

Articulate
Wildform
FlashPoint
SameShow
PresentationPro
Adobe has a product -- Adobe Presenter, maybe?

There are all of these and more.

A word of advice: Most of the PPT-to-Flash converters have trial versions. Some handle audio and animations better than others. TRY THE SOFTWARE! Try it on YOUR presentation! Try BEFORE you buy!

Thank you everyone for your response.  I have tried the poweroint to flash converters before and I diid not lilke the way they worked.  

I want to use flash.  I tried saving each chapter in a separate swf file with the audio.  Then I used loadmovie, which was fine but I could not figure out how to program a stop and pause button and each chapter took too long to load--my client had a problem with this.  Someone suggested just using actionscript -- not even needing to put anything on the stage.  Would this be an easier way?  Sorry this is so lengthy.

You're really asking Flash questions and getting answers from PowerPoint experts.  However, if you do have the items in PPT, then Camtasia is an excellent product for you.  It will save your Flash files as separate chapters complete with a Table of Contents.  I believe it's the best PPT to Video (all types) product for the money.

You're right GlennShaw!  I have tried Camtasia and it did not work for us the way we needed it.  Thank you for your time.
