Back in the day, the word “slideshow” was synonymous with “boring.” Like the dull economics teacher in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” the mere mention of a slideshow was enough to draw groans from the audience held captive by sleep-inducing static image scrolls.
No longer. Today’s PowerPoint presentations have become exciting and dynamic affairs, with attention-grabbing options to include animated gifs, embedded media, and even soundtracks and voiceovers. Whether you’re delivering a Ted Talk, preparing a student presentation, or lecturing to a packed industry conference room, the slideshow is often the most dramatic and stimulating part of your talk, helping to keep people engaged no matter how dry the topic.
The magic happens courtesy of WPS Office Presentation. This free office software is part of WPS Office’s trio of apps that are 100 percent compatible with MS Office, and thus fully support both PPT and PPTX files. WPS Office on iOS and Android offer the tools needed to not just create rough mockups for you to finalize on your PC, but to produce complete, high-quality, professional PowerPoints while on the go.
Whether you’re new to our office productivity software or just need a refresher on how powerful the Presentation system is for creating and delivering eye-popping PowerPoints that no one will snooze through, read on for the bottom line on some of the app’s best features:
- Bells and whistles. When you think about what was so humdrum about presentations of old, it can largely be traced back to the monotony that results from a slideshow with no special effects. Watching slide after slide of flat images or a stream of similarly formatted photos quickly loses its luster, which is why it became a cliché to try to avoid getting stuck watching slideshows of other people’s vacations. With WPS Office Presentation, however, you can harness the interest of even the most distracted audience members using advanced animation features that are sure to crowd-please. Whether you want a riveting slide transition, sophisticated flash interactions, powerful video, sound-surround audio, or complex imagery with multi-media effects, you’ll be able to include it thanks to Presentation.
