I would like to prepare educational materials for children. Exactly what I mean is charts with alphabet letters and pictures. Such boards could be printed or shown as a multimedia presentation. The ideal solution for Windows would seem to be Power Point or OO Impress. Unfortunately, they do not support color fonts and ligatures, which I care about the most. Is there any multimedia presentation software that supports both ligatures and color fonts? I can also make these charts in programs like QuarkXpress or Illustrator and then somehow solve the problem of efficient transfer of the charts to PowerPoint. My question is: does anyone know any free software I could use in my project? I mean the programs for: - raster and vector graphics - multimedia presentations supported ligatures and color fonts. I am not limited to Windows and offline solutions.
