Methods of showing Slides:
- HTML (from the web)
- PowerPoint (using Voxwire's Presenter Tool)
Page Loading Time
Everyone has experienced that large web pages with lots of graphics take longer to load than smaller, simpler pages. This is amplified for those using dial-up Internet connections. Showing web pages in a Voxwire Room does not speed the process up nor slow it down. Therefore, you will want to create slides that load quickly (small file-size) so that people using slow dial-up connections will not fall behind, or that page-loading will not interfere with voice delivery. If you are showing a large web page, the Presenter may need to stop talking until each guest's page has loaded. Otherwise, their computer will fight for resources and they may hear a broken voice quality. This can easily be tested prior to a meeting with someone on a dial-up connection.
Also please note, when you upload a PowerPoint presentation, it is automatically converted to a smaller size, more suitable for sharing across the Internet. This process necessarily reduces heavy graphics, so keep that in mind as you create your presentations.
