Summary
  • Gold Disk Inc's $399 Astound 1.5 for Windows is the best of several presentation graphics software packages evaluated, offering users excellent control over the objects available in the presentation screen. Astound also offers a complete set of both multimedia-based tools and traditional presentation tools. Micrografix Inc's $495 Charisma 4.0 also offers a good set of advanced tools, including 3-D imaging and drawing tools, but has very high hardware requirements. SPC Corp's $395 Harvard Graphics 2.0 has excellent usability and is a powerful package, making it a good program for both novice and expert users. However, it lacks the multimedia support offered by its competition. Macromedia Inc's Action 2.5.1 is a good program for novice and intermediate users and includes chart animation and object tools but lacks an outliner and does not allow magnified precision editing.
