Five noteworthy PowerPoint add-ons

VisualBee

There's no shortage of presentation templates out there, and sometimes they can cure a terminally dull slide show. But when you need a bit more help, check out VisualBee . It's a free add-on that's designed to enhance your existing presentations. When you run VisualBee, it analyses your presentation text and structure and tries to improve it. You may not like everything it comes up with, but it will probably contribute some legitimate improvements or give you some ideas you can work with.
