Summary

  • Presentation programs act like an electronic outline used to present information.

  • Graphics such as clip art, photographs, and motion clips can be added to a presentation to aid in comprehension and add interest.

  • Sounds can also be added to a presentation to add emphasis.

  • Presentation programs help the speaker by keeping their thoughts in order and helping him/her to remember the presentation.

  • Presentation programs help the audience members remember the information presented because they not only hear it, but they also see it.

A presentation is also more interesting when there are visual aids.

Each screen in an electronic presentation is called a slide.

The Page Up and Page Down buttons move you from slide to slide within a presentation.

PowerPoint allows you to print handouts for audience members so they can follow along easily with the presentation.

A design theme can be added to a presentation to add a colorful background with coordinating text.
