Web-based PowerPoint

Web based PowerPoint presentations are regular PowerPoint presentations that can be viewed by a web browser.  The user does not have to have PowerPoint installed on their computer to view it.  You start with a PowerPoint presentation and you then have a choice to either make it hands free or interactive.

The hands free option allows you to add a voice track to the presentation and automatically switches between the slides.  The only draw back to this option is that it does not allow the inclusion of audio and video clips. 

The interactive option allows the viewer to control the presentation.  The viewer must click on the presentation in order to advance it to the next slide. 

The following two examples show each of the two options.  Both examples are of the same presentation with minor changes due to the limitations of the hands free approach.
