|While we're on the subject of PowerPoint presentations . . . does anyone
|have recommendations for a screen capture software that allows you to
|capture a *moving* screen shot (or more accurately, a series of shots) that
|can then be inserted into PowerPoint? We want to capture the screen as
|someone uses our data entry application to show how fast they can key data.
It sounds like you want to do a screen cam which captures all the activity on
the screen for a given period into an AVI file for playback. There are a number
of utilities that do that. If anyone in your department has RoboHELP Office for
creating the help files it come with a screen cam utility.
I hope that helps.
