TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I'd suggest a lateral approach. If the PPT does not have any animations,
print the presentation to a file and use Acrobat Distiller (with "Embed

If it does have animations, use the Save as HTML feature and follow the
bouncing ball down the path that asks viewers to download and install a
browser plugin for playing the resulting file. It actually works.
