Are there any other designs for the generated presentations?

Right now our AI uses one professional design template to generate the slides. We plan to add support for more slide templates and customization options in the future, but for now it’s a clean, modern template.

Can you directly generate PowerPoint presentations with ChatGPT?

No, ChatGPT is a conversational AI that only handles text interactions. It does not support uploading files or generating slide decks directly. SlideSpeak uses more advanced AI technology tailored for powerpoint generation from documents.

Let me know if you would like me to expand or modify the FAQ section in any way. I’m happy to add more questions and answers as needed!

How long does it take to generate a presentation?

The time it takes to generate a PowerPoint presentation depends on the length of your uploaded Word/PDF document. For a 10-15 page document, expect it to take around 5 minutes. Longer documents with 50+ pages could take 10-15 minutes to generate slides. You’ll see a progress bar after clicking the generate button so you know the status.

For a quick summary of your documents you can also just use our AI summary feature, check it out here.

What elements from my document will be converted into slides?

Our AI will analyze headings, text paragraphs, images, tables, and lists in your document. It identifies key points, summaries, and data to structure into individual slides with appropriate text, bullet points and visuals. The goal is to capture all the important information and structure it effectively for a presentation.
