Installation guide#

PowerPoint add-in#

The PowerPoint add-in is a small utility that extracts slide data and slide notes and sends this information to the receiver app in real time.

OctoCue can operate without the PowerPoint add-in running, but no live slide data or notes will be displayed to the presenters.
