The Presentation Podcast – episode 174!

The PowerPoint app available today has gotten better and better over the years. It is an amazing application with features and uses. BUT that is not to say PowerPoint is perfect – or that there are features that are asked for – or there are existing features that need fixing. There are. And this episode, Troy, Nolan and Sandy talk about those missing and not complete features, knowing there is no expectation that anything beyond having a great conversation is the end result.

Podcast Release – Can AI Create Better Presentations?

AI is coming to presentation design – and every aspect of the internet, computing and the world. It is not something that just suddenly was created, but is a major evolution of technologies, and very recently packaged into consumer facing interfaces for general public use. Troy and Nolan talk about their experience with AI tools, where they see AI in presentation design, and how Microsoft’s AI powered Copilot is going to enhance presentation development, and everyone should be ready to embrace AI in presentation design – soon.

Microsoft PowerToys and PowerPoint

This is a free set of Windows OS utilities that is put out by Microsoft. I have had these installed for a while and use many of the features and I have a mini-series on some of these great features that work with presenting.

These are FREE for Windows 10 and 11 OS computers. Search “PowerToys” – 1 word – in the Microsoft App Store to install.

Once installed, all of the tools and features are available. The only parameter is PowerToys needs to be running (on my computers I have MS PowerToys automatically run when the computer starts).

5 PowerPoint Accessibility Checker Errors

This is fantastic information! Bookmark it, because at some point, we will all be asked to make a presentation that meets accessibility needs. Stephy put this great video on YouTube, and I am listing it here to let everyone know of it, and to keep it as a reference for our team to find it in the future!

Troy & Lori on The Presentation Podcast!

This episode is Troy and Lori Chollar. Microsoft Teams enables all PowerPoint files to be a collaboration file with dozens of people reviewing and editing the same file, at the same time. Troy and Lori of TLC Creative Services talk about how they have integrated Teams into the company presentation design workflow, how Teams files are key to their slide review process, and how Teams files are often a part of the backend setup for live meetings.
