Top Alternatives to Prezi and PowerPoint - the ultimate list

Top Alternatives to Prezi and PowerPoint - the ultimate list | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

If you are tired of looking for great alternatives to Prezi – look no further, because I have the ultimate comprehensive list of PowerPoint alternatives right here.  No more boring presentations. With this list you can pick the perfect presentation tool or software for your presentation (be it on stage in-front of an audience or online for sharing).


We tested these 10 different alternatives to Prezi and PowerPoint and summarized what we thought about each one.

this is truly amazing. 

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, September 7, 2014 8:36 AM

This is pretty much an ad for emaze, but it's good to know what is available commercially in terms of presentations.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 5, 2015 12:59 AM

Interesting list. Worth checking out some of these tools to see if I like them better than Prezi :)

Robin Good: HelloSlide is a web-based service which allows anyone to upload a PDF (max 100MB) and add a voice-over track to it by simply adding a text copy of what needs to be said on each slide.
