PowerPoint is a widely used presentation program that started in the world of business but has now become commonplace in the world of education. Because of PowerPoint, making our school and office presentations is a lot easier, and with its amazing features, PowerPoint helps our presentations to have a greater visual impact.
When we do our PowerPoint presentation, sometimes we can’t avoid facing some technical issues, like a faulty computer, or the unavailability of a PC or laptop to present your PowerPoint. That is a hassle, especially when you’re presenting for work or school.
Also, if some of your audiences are unavailable to see your presentation due to time or location restrictions, you can convert the PowerPoint into a slideshow and burn it to the disc.
In that way, your audiences can watch the disc afterward. And the disc will serve as your backup if you lost your USB drive during a meeting or school presentation.
