At the bottom of the presenter screen, click Slides, followed by Add slides to select a PPT file and begin the upload process.
Once slides are uploaded, you can preview them in the slides carousel. When you're ready to present them to your audience, click on the relevant slide to proceed.
To advance your slides, use the green arrow buttons located on the bottom of the presenter screen; or Jump to slide, if you had a specific slide in mind.
Once you're finished presenting your slides, click End slides to revert the room back to your webcam. You can return back to the slides at any point during your live talk.
If you need to replace your slides, click Slides, followed by Remove slides. You'll then be able to add a new PowerPoint file.

When can I upload my slides?
Slides can be uploaded at any time - before or during your live event. We recommend uploading slides in advance of your live talk as a best practice.
I have custom fonts, what do I do?
Custom fonts will look different when uploaded to your talk (please review supported fonts above). When using an unsupported font, we will attempt to substitute the font for the closest matching font available. Embedding fonts in your presentation can help resolve the issue. Alternatively, you can use screen share to present slides.
Why did my slide upload fail?
Ensure that the file is not saved as 'Read only', locked for editing, password-protected or has any type of access restrictions. If you're unable to upload the deck for any other reason, consider flattening the deck (saving slides as images) or using screen share instead.
Is embeddable content (video/audio/hyperlinks) playable?
Embeddable content is not playable in slides. Consider using video play-ins during your live talk.
How can I reduce the file size of my slides?
If your PPT file is over 100MB, you can compress images to reduce the file size.
