I need to find a way to update a powerpoint slide mid-presentation with images based on audience feedback (ie. audience votes for an image and then that image gets put on a slide later).
I'm concerned about the risk of editing in presentation mode and the editor inadvertently exiting the slideshow in the middle of the presentation.
Are there any add-ons etc. that can be used in PowerPoint to edit/modify a slide during mid presentation while preventing the risk of messing up the live presentation if possible?
Ideas thus far:
- Using the LiveWeb plugin and an FTP site/Dropbox to point to an image and overwrite the image on the LiveWeb slide based on audience feedback (too complicated for the editors that will be doing this live)
- Update presentation remotely while on a shared network (not sure if PPT will update this live.).
- Update: As long as the presentation is using "Presenter View" and an extended monitor, you can navigate through the entire computer and edit any slide on the PowerPoint. Edited slides will show the updated content/images in the live presentation. Doing this, however, pauses the live presentation. So if the person presenting needs to go to the next slide or activate an animation while you are editing, it won't happen until the presentation is resumed. This seems like it will work as long as the presenter doesn't try to move to the next slide before the editor is done editing. Any add-ins that allow for simultaneos editing AND navigation of the presentation?
Has anyone ever done something like this before? What did you do to make it work in a live presentation?
