slideware

Contributor(s): Sarah Lewis

Slideware is an overarching term for a presentation program that facilitates the creation and implementation of content into the form of a digital slideshow. Every slideware product performs three basic functions: text editing, multimedia insertion and broadcast display formatting.

The popularity of slideware is increasing as the use of visuals is proven to increase the audience's ability to resonate with and retain information. Organizations have been tailoring slideware programs into useful sources of information such as marketing collateral, internal business meeting aids and customer-facing documents. However, it is also becoming more vital to avoid death by PowerPoint, caused by the tendency of insecure speakers to overuse or misuse presentation software.

Types of slideware can range in functionality and price, making it crucial for companies to choose a solution that best fits their needs. Examples of different slideware features that may be necessary to consider are the ability to have multiple contributors to one presentation, the ability to stream slideshows or the ability to implement interactive elements.

Examples of slideware products:

  • Microsoft PowerPoint (a part of Microsoft Office)
  • Google Slides
  • Prezi
  • Apple Keynote
  • Zoho Show
  • Adobe Spark
  • Canva
