Summary
  • Gold Disk's $129 Astound 1.5 for Windows is the only presentation software package that includes the latest multimedia functions but does not neglect traditional presentation tools for outlines, displays and graphs. It includes a spell checker, an outliner and extensive text-formatting functions, and users can create a variety of customizable charts from imported spreadsheets. But Astound's most impressive features are the multimedia options, which support many file formats and data types. The program is based around timelines, which let users designate when images will appear on a slide and how long they will remain on display. Timelines are designed in dialog boxes, and users can synchronize related events in different timelines. Unfortunately, Astound's user interface is not always intuitive, especially in the creation of timelines, and users must click through several levels of dialog boxes to use multimedia objects.
