How to Convert PowerPoint to Kindle or Ebook Friendly Format
If you need to open PowerPoint presentations on Kindle then there are multiple ways. Here we will base our research on this question asked on Superuser, where someone is asking how to convert PowerPoint to a e-reader friendly format.
The original question says:
I have a lot of documents in .ppt and .pptx (blame the co-workers). I would like to read them on way home or elsewhere… when I have a little time to catch up with things. One thing I could do with the documents is cutting them together into one file. But saving that one even if a smaller version of PDF (according to Office 2010) results in a huge file.
And PDF is hardly readable on a Kindle.
I would need something .epub free, easy-on-the-device way.
Is there such a thing?
(Manually I could copy all the images down into native text and whatnot and create new presentations, save those, convert them. But that would just take a lot of time.)
A possible approach to convert the .PPT PowerPoint slides to ebook friendly format is using the .mobi standard format for ebooks. The easiest way to do it is using tools like Calibre. Download free OneNote 2013 templates. Calibre is a free and open source e-book library management application developed by users of e-books, Kindle and tablets in general for users of e-books. It has a cornucopia of features divided into the following main categories like Library Management, Ebook conversion tools, syncing to ebooks reader devices such as Kindle, Google Nexus, Motorola, etc. as well as downloading news from the web and converting it to ebook format, or comprehensive ebook viewer for the computer or PC as well as content server for online access to your book collection.
By using this tool you can easily convert from PDF to .mobi format and then view the documents in your reader as an ebook.
So, if you want to convert a PowerPoint presentation to ebook friendly format, an approach is to convert first your presentation slides to Adobe PDF (learn more on How to convert PowerPoint to PDF or print your slides with PDF printer).
In this case we are experimenting with the timeline toolkit template provided by PresenterMedia, and will convert it to PDF for testing purposes.
Then, open Calibre and drag and drop your PDF presentation to the program. From here you will be able to convert the PDF to ebook standard book like .mobi or even .epub format.
Moreover, you can find DRM free books on Calibre website. See more here DRM Free books by genre.
