Powerpoint presentation on website (HTML)?

P: 19
I have a Powerpoint presentation I want to show on a website. I know that Word documents, Excel sheets etc can be showed on a HTML page, in a way so that the frame containing them is filled with this kind of document. What I really want is the ability to start a slideshow in a HTML frame (which of coures requires the viewer to have PowerPoint installed). Can this be done? (I know converting to PDF is an option, but I'd rather not go there)

Thanks, Robin

Yes!

There is a wizard in PowerPoint to help with this. I have seen it done and heard it can be done although never tried for myself (wanted to though). As you're designing the powerpoint presentation, save normally (ppt). When finished select Save As Web Page (or Save As HTML). The Wizard will guide you through all the steps (Layout, Graphics, Options, and a few others). The final step creates a folder where you specify and puts the created presentation in it.

When finished, copy this folder to where your web page is. In the HTML, enter the URL of the folder where you want your powerpoint presentation to appear (the slideshow contains and index.html so you should be good).

Hope this helps!

Alternatively you could use XML and Javascript to do some cool stuff. I won't describe it in full but the following link is class presentation slides from one of my profs.

http://www-acad.sheridanc.on.ca/~joe/PROG20799/2006/slides/ArraySlides.html

Check the source code. He uses <div class="presentation"> and <div class="slides">. The result is pretty cool. Just like viewing a slideshow but from a web page.

Why not convert it to flash - there's plenty of third party apps out there that can do the job. For example...

It's not something I've ever bothered doing myself, but if you do a Google search for 'powerpoint flash convert' there's no shortage of apps it seems. There may even be a free one in there (or if not you could use one on a free trial to do this job!)
