Abstract

Typical presentations such as Microsoft PowerPoint project the presentaiton on to a screen for an audience. This approach is lacking on mobile devices as it does not allow a viewer to annotate, review, or pause the presentation. Also, preferences are varied per user, such as viewing for color-blind or extra large print.

WIRELESS SLIDESHOW

Wirelessly Enabling Slideshow Presentation

Disclosed Anonymously

Typical presentations such as Microsoft PowerPoint project the presentaiton on to a screen for an audience. This approach is lacking on mobile devices as it does not allow a viewer to annotate, review, or pause the presentation. Also, preferences are varied per user, such as viewing for color-blind or extra large print.

By transmitting the presentation to wireless mobile devices over a network (e.g. 802.11, Bluetooth, or a cell phone network), each viewer would have their own copy. Each slide would be received as the presenter presents it. As such, each viewer would be able to pause or review previous slides as these would be stored on the device.

The viewer on each device may change the content to make it friendlier to persons with color blindness, or allow each slide to be magnified and scrolled for those requiring large print. Furthermore, individual slides could be saved, bookmarked, annotated, or have the text copied into another application for easier note taking.
