I would like a WYSIWYG editor similar to Power Point (or Hyper Card) but the output needs to be readable in a standard way that can be easily embedded in another app without licencing issues. We'd also like to avoid pressing issues of abandonment / security flaws (Flash etc.). One option is to convert power-point to html 5. An Adobe tool is claimed to have this feature as well as an online converter which I have not tried. There are also projects such as reveal.js which may allow editing in a more html5 friendly format. I expect to have large and complicated presentations. I might appreciate some suggestions from someone who has used one of these options or another option for vector graphics presentations to help me weigh my options.

LibreOffice Impress has the following features:

  • Free, Gratis & Open Source
  • Cross Platform (Windows, OS-X & Linux)
  • Just about all of the power of PowerPoint
  • Export as html with a choice of image formats, (each slide will be an image).
  • Full GUI for designing your slideshows
  • Presenter mode, (i.e. Slides on one screen with timer, notes & preview on another)
  • Part of an integrated suite and can use data from the rest of the suite.
  • 1
    I am not sure if it will work because LibreOffice may not be lightweight enough to bundle and I am not sure how easy it will be to embed the player. Also, many slides are choreographed sequences of fade-ins and fade-outs, so reducing each slide to a static image is not acceptable. Commented Jul 24, 2016 at 16:49
