Get help using the laptop, Powerpoint and Adobe Reader

Software capabilities are limited to Powerpoint reader and Adobe reader ONLY. The reader software can accommodate presentations created in Microsoft or Mac formats. Presenters will not be able to use their own laptop computers since the audio visual setups in the meeting rooms MUST NOT be changed in any way. Presenters must bring their Powerpoint or Adobe presentations on a flash drive and insert the flash drive into the ISA netbook computer at the start of the presentation.

Please note: Audio, internet, DVD drives/players, and overhead projectors are NOT provided by ISA. Additional services can be purchased by individuals (at own cost).
