Is is possible to creatle a timed slide show + controls

I am converting powerepoint presentations to images I want to display
as slide shows.
My questions is I want it so that when a link is clike the slide show
opens. The slides will be initially timed but there are also controls
so that if they want to go back or advance the images at their own
pace. Is this too complicated??

I know how to make a slow that displays images ina times sequence, but
Ive never added controls that would stop the sequence.

Let me know if you need more expanation.

Since your timed slideshow is based on either setTimeout or setInterval,
then you define a pointer:

var myInterval = window.setInterval(...)

And then, you have a button:

<button onclick="window.clearInterval(myInterval)">
Stop the slideshow</button>

<button onclick="var myInterval = window.setInterval(...)">
Start the slideshow</button>
