In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer, please note the following instructions while preparing your presentation prior its uploading in the Speaker Preview Room, to avoid last minute problems of incompatibility:

 

  • Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (special fonts might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint based PC).
  • Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).
