Completely Include a Website in PowerPoint Presentation


Presenting things is all about showing the smartness in you. And if you can seamlessly blend the simple and complex with a

unique approach

 then you can impress anybody. Since a presentation may contain diverse stuff like text, pictures, links to other files etc. you have to take utmost care while integrating them into the presentation.

However, you always have to navigate away from the presentation flow if you want to show some website and its specific features to the viewers. This might end up breaking the viewer attention, which isn’t a great thing for the presenter.

Today we will describe a solution to such problems wherein you can integrate websites into presentation slides and browse in real-time during your slideshow (without having to navigate away from the PowerPoint Application).

We will do this with the help of an add-in for MS PowerPoint called LiveWeb.
