PowerPoint users report, sometimes, that when they send their presentation through e-mail, the recipients are unable to play the presentation. It just refuses to load. Although the problem is rarely experienced it can be a cause of concern in certain cases. If your Audio and Video does not play in PowerPoint then this post will walk you through the process of troubleshooting audio and video playback and compatibility in PowerPoint.
Improved smart guides and resume reading are two easy-to-use features in PowerPoint 2013. PowerPoint 2013 has two new features that many users will love.

They first showed up in PowerPoint 2010, but they're even smarter in 2013. You've probably noticed both, but you might not be using them to your advantage!
