    google docs and slideboom do not permit synchronised, annotated slide presentation controlled by the speaker. Haven’t gone down the list far enough to discover if others have this capability.

    Any recommendations would be most welcome!

    Thanks for your post on presentation tools.

    I don’t understand that you claim that Slide Rocket is not free. I use Slide Rocket in a free edition. There is a free and a paid plan.
