A presentation program is a software package used to display information in the form of a slide show. It has three major functions: an editor that allows text to be inserted and formatted, a method for inserting and manipulating graphic images, and a slide-show system to display the content. Presentation program is supposed to help both the speaker with an easier access to his ideas and the participants with visual information which complements the talk.

Hi,

Is it possible to share a Goole slide deck with someone and force it full screen?

I don't want the viewer to see the thumbs slides on the side and I need to make sure it is viewed in presentation mode, otherwise the deck will not make sense as i have several images and text that need to animate over each other. If you it view it without 'Presenation' mode, the graphics and text and all mumbled on top of each other.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

I am looking for a recommendation for free software that will allow me to capture video/audio of my desktop, an active window, or a specified area.  I need it to be able to create small file sizes as well.  I have been working with CamStudio, and am just fed up trying to get it to work.  I would like to have something really easy to use so I can push it out to users and ask them to document common issues, do demos, and short training.  If I have to I can buy it, but it seems like there would be some freeware out there.  Any advice will be appreciated.  Needs to be Win 10 compatible and show the mouse.  Thank you!

I want to have a bottom-of-slide banner on every slide except the title slide.
But when I go into the slide master view, my banner is not removable from the title slide layout.  It can only be removed from the slide master. How can I keep the banner on every slide except the Title slide?

I am looking for a software solution that would allow us to use a TV connected to a computer, to present a slideshow of sorts for company events, visitors in the office, employee birthdays, meeting dates..etc.

I would like to be able to update the "slides" quickly each day.

I think PowerPoint will take too much time to create a new presentation for each day.  

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello,

we are redoing a conference room and I am looking very hard at a device by BARCO (CS-100) to allow presenters to wirelessly display to an HD TV Monitor.   Does anyone have any experience with this device and if it works well.  Looking for something that presenters that come in with a tablet or laptop whether it is Windows 10 or 7 (or even a MAC) can show their presentation.

Also - wondering if there is a way in our city council chambers to have a presentation viewable on each council members' laptop or ipad?  IS there such a way to do this wirelessly?  

THanks

Storytelling through Photography
I designed this idea while studying technology in the classroom.  This is a semester long project.  Students are asked to take photographs on a specific topic which they find meaningful, it can be a place or situation such as travel or homelessness.  Students are then meant to compile their images together and give a presentation at the end of the class of their images and reasoning behind choosing there subject.  Strong technology skills are required as this project requires use of camera, computer and editing software.  Students will need to be guided through the steps of taking images, importing images and creating a presentation of there images throughout the entire semester.
1.  Photograph Images (could be taken from DSLR, camera or even just phone camera)
2.  Upload images to Computer
3.  Create a presentation (current video used iMovie)
4.  Add voice over to presentation
5.  Students present their projects to the class with explanation on the chosen topic

Each step should be gone over and taught in class to give students the opportunity to do the same with their own presentations.

Is there  a Overhead Projector that has the ability to adjust the screen size without moving the projector.   I understand it is the len that controls this but cannot find a projector with this adjustable len capabilities.

We have a projector mounted in at the ceiling 18' from wall,   it is used at this point for full size screen 7'X12' image for  a simulator software program.

We need to use this same room for  Meeting/conference/presentations also  the projector needs to adjust the projection screen size to approx.   5'x5'  image.

I want to be able to paste text and change the formatting of certain lines in an existing text box, named "author", on my powerpoint file.  I have a bank of authors that the user chooses from (1-10).  I have a Select Case setup to automatically assign values to variables I'm using to populate the text box with:

	
Case Else
  strEngName = "<author's name>"  'line 1
  strEngTitle = "<author's title>"  'line 2
  strPhone = "Office: <author's phone>"  'line 3
  strEmail = "Email: <author's email>"  'line 4

Open in new window


The first two lines are Black and Bold Italic, the next two lines are Gray and Italic.

The text box is existing and I'm just replacing placeholder text.

We are preparing a powerpoint presentation and are including a series of small clips.  We are trying to sync the timing of the running clips and text description as to to have these display displayed in specific time within the clip.  Can this be done? Hoe?

Thank you very much!

Measuring Skill Over Technology
Many programs have tried to outwit PowerPoint in terms of technology and skill. These programs, however, still lack several characteristics that PowerPoint has possessed from the start. Here's why PowerPoint replacements won't entirely work for designers and businesses alike.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

One of my colleagues will be giving a live presentation via web browser using an old tool.  Several functions are not working well include the record feature.  I need to record this to make it available to other clients/partners.  If i attend the webinar is there a software package (preferably free) that i can use to record both the audio and video?
