I have the job of creating an application that will browse through and display/slowly scroll through different sites (with scrolling text at the bottom), and play powerpoint presentations. It is to play on a public widescreen.

I did the first part using iframes and javascript, but I have no idea where to start for the powerpoint presentation. I read microsoft's 10 second easy online tutorial but it required me to sign up for skydrive and use it as the server to host my presentation. Problem is that the computer will be disconnected from the internet and even if it wasn't, I'd rather do everything locally.

I appreciate it a lot! Thank you!
