Roche Genetics Education Program v5.0.0 Presentation Tool

Overview

The Roche Genetics Education Program Presentation Tool allows you to create a presentation by pre-selecting screens from the Program in any desired sequence. The presentation can then be viewed and the screens will display as normal, including:

The presentation play list is created using the Presentation Editor. The text in the editor is in English except for the list of screens; these are in the language of the folder from which the presentation editor is being run.
