The whole point of creating a PowerPoint presentation is to show it off to
an audience. To help you keep an audience’s attention, PowerPoint
provides Hollywood-style special effects to make your presentation look more
PowerPoint also provides features for creating handouts for your audience.
Because people often want to take notes during an interesting presentation
(or just doodle during a really boring presentation), PowerPoint can create
handouts that you can print and distribute.
Spell-Checking Your Presentation
You could have the best presentation in the world, but it will look like the
worst presentation in the world if you have misspellings and typos on your
slides for everyone to snicker at. To prevent this problem from occurring,
PowerPoint can spell-check your entire presentation.
PowerPoint automatically underlines all misspelled words with a red squiggly
line. If you right-click any word underlined with a red squiggly line, a pop-up
menu appears with a list of correctly spelled alternatives that you can choose.
