5. PREPARING YOUR PRESENTATION
Fonts: We only support fonts that are included with Windows 7/10. If you need a specialized font, it should be embedded into your PowerPoint presentation. For instructions on this process, please click on the following link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826832/en-us
6. CONSIDERATIONS FOR MAC USERS
Pictures: If you use a version of PowerPoint prior to 2008, please be sure any embedded pictures are not TIFF format. These images will not show up in Windows PowerPoint. With PowerPoint 2008 for the Mac, this is no longer an issue, and any inserted image will be compatible. To avoid issues we recommend inserting your images via the insert command not copy and pasting directly into the slide.
Movies: Quicktime Pro 7 can natively export MOV, DV, QT, or MP4 files as Cinepack codec AVI files. While the resulting file is Windows compatible, there are add on products to Quicktime that will give a better results.
Divx offers a plug-in for Quicktime 7 Pro that will convert all Quicktime movie formats to Windows compatible divx AVI files. It is available at the following website: http://www.divx.com/en/products/software/mac/divx-pro
If you cannot convert the files or have a considerable number of files, please check with a technician in the Speaker Ready Room who can make arrangements to convert the videos, or at the Society’s discretion, confirm you will be allowed to present from your own laptop.
Keynote Users: Keynote will not be accepted since it cannot be played back on PC. Please export your presentation as a PowerPoint.
