New feature in Office: Transform Word documents into PowerPoint presentations
Presentations are currently one of the most frequently used applications in business environments, but it may take a long time for users to make presentations.
Although there are already many presentation templates that can ease our workload, Microsoft is now introducing more useful features that allow you to transform Word documents into PowerPoint presentations.
Specifically, Microsoft uses artificial intelligence to identify the content of a document, and then automatically creates a presentation based on the content of the document, allowing users to simply modify it. This feature will be provided to Word for the web, and will gradually promote and support other versions.
To use this feature, you need to make sure that your document content is very organized and as clear as possible so that the artificial intelligence program can be more accurate when performing recognition.
The working principle behind it is this, first, artificial intelligence recognizes the main title of the document content, and then automatically generates the corresponding presentation page based on the title.
Then continue to identify the content to extract the meaning of the document and use it to fill in the content on the manuscript page. Here the main page of the presentation can be automatically completed.
Of course, the functions provided by Microsoft are not only that, in order to continue to enrich the presentation content, artificial intelligence will automatically insert pictures, videos, and illustrations into the page.
It even automatically selects the most suitable theme and font style based on the content of the document, so the content generated under the ideal effect hardly needs to be adjusted significantly.
To turn your Word document into a PowerPoint presentation:
- Open any document you want to convert into a presentation in Word for the web.
- Click File>Transform > Transform to PowerPoint presentation.
- When prompted, choose a design theme for your presentation.
- Click Open presentation to review the results in PowerPoint for theweb.
- The presentation will be created in the OneDrive root folder of the user who used this option.
