Microsoft PowerPoint, which started life in the early 1990s, is a software program created specifically for the creation of slides that speakers use during live presentations. It allows for content combinations of text, images, photos, diagrams, audio and video, and facilitates not only slide layout and formatting options, but animations and slide transition effects as well. Additional features, such as Presenter View and Presenter Tools, enable a speaker to interact with the content on each slide during their presentation or talk.
Slides are added to a presentation in the sequence the speaker wishes to use them during the talk. Sets of slides that make up a presentation can also be packaged as a video allowing for the creation of sharable media content. Slide shows can also be packaged as quizzes and training programs with which users interact.
It is most frequently used to create slides for speaker presentations, but can also be used to create media content such as videos, advertisements, school and university projects, interactive storyboards and quizzes, animated stories and much more.
