LaTeX Slides

I’m working on some slides, and I just have to plug a neat package called Prosper. It lets me use LaTeX to write my slides (complete with all of LaTeX’s great mathematics type-setting), and produces results that look suitably PowerPoint-ish. An alternative technology is TeXPoint, which allows the embedding of TeX/LaTeX material directly into PowerPoint slides. I might use this if it weren’t for the fact that I’m redoing a whole bunch of slides that were originally pure LaTeX.
