A guard against stuck Kiosk presentations in PowerPoint.
One problem with PowerPoint’s Kiosk mode is a slide that won’t advance as you expect. Your lovely presentation gets stuck on a single slide.
Some versions of PowerPoint have inbuilt protection against that. After 5 minutes of no activity in a kiosk presentation, Powerpoint intervenes to restart the presentation.
Sadly, PowerPoint 2002 (XP) and PowerPoint 2013 don’t have that feature – go figure.
Kiosk Assistant is a free add-in that restores the MIA feature and lets you choose the ‘go to’ slide if the presentation gets stuck.
