2. Software Overview
Microsoft PowerPoint is a popular program for creating presentations and slide shows. It is one of several standard applications included with Microsoft Office and is used in both business and educational environments.
PowerPoint allows you to create slides that support many different kinds of content, including text, images, drawings, as well as rich content such as audio and video. Individual objects within a slide can be displayed all at once or as a series of events. For example, you can choose to display one bullet point at a time instead of listing all the points at once. Several effects can be applied to objects within a slide, such as fading in an image or scrolling text across the screen. Transitions can also be added between slides.
PowerPoint provides several master templates that can be used as slideshow themes, and also allows you to create your own templates for custom-designed presentations. In addition to templates included within PowerPoint, there are thousands of templates in the online repository that can be used for creating presentations. PowerPoint templates are organized by keywords and categories, which helps you find the right design for your audience. Categories include Business, Calendars, Charts and Diagrams, Education, and others. Newer versions of PowerPoint save presentations in the Office Open XML (OOXML) .PPTX format, while older versions use the proprietary .PPT format.
Microsoft PowerPoint is an industry-standard application used by business professionals, teachers, and home users. It gives you the tools to create and display business figures, lessons, photo slideshows, and more. If you use any of the Microsoft Office applications, you should try Microsoft PowerPoint for your next presentation.
