Re: Power Point with jaws anyone?

?Hey dave:


Fair point. I've talked to a bunch of people concerning this power point problem of mine and they all say the same thing. Pay the web seminars. I really need the techniques and skills to make a good presentation using power point. So, I am going to spend the money. I need professional-looking presentation. I don't want to make a sloppy job at anything. Also, do you know if the web seminars for excel are worth it as well. I thought that since I am going to spend the money for power point, why not spend it on excel as well. Any suggestion will be welcome.


Alex:


I know next to nothing about power point. I need to use it now. I don't have the time to do a sloppy job. I want to know how to do a professional-looking presentation. I am in university, but I need to do it as well as I can. If the rest of my classmates can, why shouldn't I? The speakers notes, that doesn't makes much of a difference. In fact, I can just put a picture and hide them on there. Or the easy thing, write them on index cards and read them as my other classmates.

Wrong, Alex. I've taken the webinar and it is designed for 2007, and the
concepts for creating slides are the same as far as making presentations.
Don't talk about what you haven't tried yourself.

Using notes is not possible in any version of JAWS and this is pointed out
in the webinar, so you won't have any miracles. However you can create
slides that give you complete control over the content and even allow you to
control the bullet points to allow you, as the presenter, to stay in sync
with the slides, one bullet at a time. There is a way to caption the picture
so that they remind you of their content.

The webinar is well worth the cost if you plan to be serious about making
presentations. I've tried making them before I took the webinar, and it's
much easier to do with the tools presented.

Again I don't know if there are archives available for this webinar, but if
not, then either pay the price, or don't cast aspersions against something
you haven't tried yourself.

And, no I don't work for Freedom Scientific. I am a Sales Engineer and
making presentations is part of my job.

That seminar was good for powerpoint 2003 techniques not 2007.  Jaws
sucks with 07 where it once was pretty decent with 03.  I would make
really sure before I plunked my money down that the version of
powerpoint featured in that seminar wasn't an old one.  FS totally
dropped the ball with 07 and I don't think they have even bothered to
fix the jaws issues with it in jaws 12.  This is something of a major
annoyance to me since I use this stuff every day at work to train
classes.  I can't write on a board and powerpoint helps with filling
the void since I have it hooked up to a projector.  but, man, would it
be nice if the notes and outline pane worked propperly.

Hola lista! Nesesito ayuda!

Hello list, I need help!

I am taking a public education class on my university and they expect
everyone on the class to do a power point presentation. The problem
is, I don't know anything about power point and how to use it with
jaws. I tried the jaws help but they only list the key strokes. FS
has a web seminar, or something like that, about how to use power
point. But guess what? The seminar cost more than an old man's
pension... again! I am willing to give up the money since power point
is a must on most of my classes. However, I don't know if it will
work. Does anyone know of any other, more cheaper, alternatives? If
not, do you know  if the freedomscientific web seminars work and are
worth the huge amount of money they cost?
