Either that, or you can download the presentation to your desktop, open your Powerpoint software, and then open the downloaded file. The presentations are not timed in any way, and you can move through them at your own pace. Some sounds are embedded in the presentation, coordinated (in theory, anyway) with the moving graphics. When you move the mouse cursor across the slide, an icon will appear in the lower left-hand corner of the window.
