Tips for using PowerPoint Internet Assistant pages

PowerPoint Internet Assistant provides two versions of each presentation slide-a graphic version and a text version. If you have a reasonably fast communication link, the graphics version will permit you to see all the graphic content of the presentation, which will be missed in the text version.

A significant portion of each page consists of the notes section, located below the navigation buttons. I use the notes to elaborate on the outline provided in the slide proper. Don't forget to read them!

Each slide has four navigation buttons (if appropriate). You may go forward to the next slide, backward to the previous slide, return to the beginning of the presentation (the index page), or switch between the graphic and text views.

next.gif (232 bytes) Go to next slide
prev.gif (232 bytes) Go to previous slide
info.gif (248 bytes) Return to start (index page)
text.gif (244 bytes) Change from graphic to text view
