With two monitors in PPT2007, slide presenters can run other programs that viewers cannot see, and can access presenter views. The Presenter view provides the tools shown in Figure 1 to make the presentation process easier.
Figure 1 Using Presenter view
While a supported computer might be able to support more than two monitors, PPT2007 supports only two monitors for the presentation.
After entering presenter view, as shown in Figure 2, presenters can use thumbnails to select slides without order and to create a custom presentation for the audience. Previewing text lets users see what will be added to the screen the next time they click, such as a new slide or the next line of bulleted text in the list. In addition, note information for slides is displayed in a clear, large font so that they can be used as scripts for presentation.
Figure 2 Presenter view and audience-visible demo interface
The user can turn off the screen during the demo, and then return to where it left off. For example, a presenter might not want to show the contents of a slide while resting or answering a question.
In Presenter view, icons and buttons are so large that it is convenient to navigate, even if you are using an unfamiliar keyboard or mouse. Figure 3 shows the various tools that can be used in Presenter view.
