The word presentation means preasanting sonthing. We see a speaker explaining the topic of discussion in front of the audience in different places such as discussion circles, seminars, exhibitions, classrooms etc. It is often seen that the speaker presents his speech with the help of text, pictures, tables, graphs etc. to attract the attention of the audience. A slide is prepared with the help of such texts, pictures, tables or graphs.
The speaker presents his speech in accordance with this slide. In this case overhead projector is used. Presently, with the help of text, pictures, tables or graphs in PowerPoint application software, such presentations can be made in a beautiful and attractive way. We can add sound as needed. We create slide presentations by animating these texts, images, tables or graphs in different ways. Images, text, sound, music, animation etc. stored in the computer are used in this slide presentation.
