Note: There are presentation (“PowerPoints”) on this website. Many people think that ‘PowerPoint’ is a type of file you need Microsoft Office to open. This idea locks people into buying a MS Office subscription for $100/year. However, this is not so – PowerPoint is just a presentation format, and you can make, view and edit presentations interchangeably with any of the programs notes below, some of which are free: OpenOffice – Impress; LibreOffice – Impress; GoogleDocs – Slides; Corel WordPerfect – Presentations; MS Office – PowerPoint
