What is a Slide Show (or Slideshow)?

By

Definition: Slide shows have come a long way since those shown on the slide projectors of old. Many digital presentations, such as those created in PowerPoint or OpenOffice Impress are composed of several slides.

The slide show can be enhanced using transitions and animations. Music, sounds or narration can be added to these slide shows and they can run unattended by using custom timings. The slide show is most often projected on a screen using a digital projector.

Examples:
Once Mary had completed creating her PowerPoint presentation, she was ready to show it to her colleagues as a slide show.
