View Full Version : Powerpoint - PC vs MAC

Hi

My son is doing a homework assignment and has decided to show it as a Powerpoint presentation. The school uses Mac computers, our home puters are IBM compatible PC's.

Will a Powerpoint presentation, saved as .pps work on a Mac?

What about the embedded midi/wav sounds. Will they play?

Otherwise it looks like we will be dragging our PC over to the school.

Thanks in advance

This should not be a problem as Powerpoint on Mac and PC are designed to work together.
Obviously the school will need to have Powerpoint installed.

There can be complications with audio files though due to the way they are saved and this can occur whether you are using another PC or a Mac

Only one way to find out for sure is test it first.
