Beamer Manual

Part IV Creating Supporting Material

The objective of the beamer class is to simplify the creation of presentations using a projector. However, a presentation rarely exists in isolation. Material that accompanies a presentation includes:

  • • Presentations should normally be accompanied by handouts, written text that the audience can read during and/or after your presentation is given.

  • • You might wish to create notes for yourself that, ideally, are shown to you on your computer screen while the audience sees the presentation.

  • • You might wish to create a printout of your talk, either for yourself or for checking for errors.

  • • You might wish to create a transparencies version of your talk as a fall-back.

This part discusses how beamer helps you with the creation of the above.
