Using the PresenterCard

PresenterCards allow presenters to control TurningPoint and TurningPoint Anywere software.   The cards provide presenters the ability to start/stop polling, hide/show results, and advance slides in either PowerPoint or Keynote. Three additional buttons can be customized for other common functions such as displaying the countdown timer, re-polling a slide, or displaying/hiding the tool bar.

The first step in using a PresenterCard is to pair it with a receiver.  This is done in either the TurningPoint or TurningPoint Anywhere software settings.  The directions for both applications can be found on this page: Pairing a PresenterCard with a Receiver
