In the last few chapters, you’ve been learning how to build and present slide shows that support
you as you speak to your audience directly. When you build such presentations, you design each
slide to assist you, not duplicate your efforts. Slides designed for a live presentation typically do
not contain a lot of detail; they function as pointers and reminders for the much more detailed live
discussion or lecture taking place in the foreground.
When you build a self-running or user-interactive presentation, the focus is exactly the opposite.
The slides are going out there all alone and must be capable of projecting the entire message all by
themselves. Therefore, you want to create slides that contain much more information.
Another consideration is audience interest. When you speak to your audience live, the primary focus
is on you and your words. The slides assist you, but the audience watches and listens primarily to
you. Therefore, to keep the audience interested, you have to be interesting. If the slides are inter-
esting, that’s a nice bonus. With a self-running or user-interactive presentation, on the other hand,
each slide must be fascinating. The animations and transitions that you learned about in Chapter
16 come in very handy in creating interest, as do sounds and videos, discussed in Chapter 14 and
Chapter 15.
