Presentation and Authoring Programs

Multimedia presentation and authoring software are tools that allow the user to bring all the multimedia components into a coherent presentation or product. While there is some overlap between presentation and authoring tools, a comparison of the two is valuable.

On any slide, you can attach a media file with an image, animation, or sound. Some of them will allow very simple branching out of a linear sequence.
