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.

    Welcome to Stack Exchange! It's unclear to me exactly what you're asking for - color fonts and ligatures I believe Powerpoint does allow you to change the color of any text. as far as ligatures, do you mean English language text ligatures like these: example? Do you have an image you can share to help explain what you're trying to accomplish? – Joshjurg Oct 30 '19 at 18:39
  • Yes, I mean text ligatures like in your example. Here you find some information about color fonts: colorfonts.wtf. I want to make such charts as efficiently as possible: srv19859.microhost.com.pl/2019-10-30_20h38_34.jpg School font from this example requires ligatures and color font format COLR support. I am not limited to COLR. Formats can be converted in trans type: fontlab.com/font-converter/transtype – reti Oct 30 '19 at 19:50
  • I'm amazed PowerPoint does not support OT ligatures. However, if Word does, is it possible to import a Word doc into PowerPoint as the basis of the presentation? – Andrew Leach Oct 31 '19 at 9:34
  • I was amazed too, but Publisher supports, unfortunately without color fonts. I didn't try import Word doc to PP. – reti Oct 31 '19 at 10:36
