Prezi v sway

I have recently been using Prezi for business presentations and they have been well received. I have also been introduced to MS Sway. So I thought this comparison of some of the pros and shortcomings of both would be beneficial to others.

  • 4.  Creating bullet lists and font enhancements is limited  To insert better looking text lists ◦ Create your list in PPT or Word using Smart Art ◦ Save the list as an image ◦ Upload to sway ◦ ** I like to create in PPT as I think it is cleaner to convert to an image file
  • 5.  Charting options don’t appear to work yet  The option to upload a PowerPoint exists, but the format gets corrupted ◦ Example: Upload of a PPT that had animations and details on a slide got broken up into multiple cards with meaningless bits of actual slide data that was unusable
  • 6.  No easy migration path from free site to pro ◦ Have to rework your presentations  Limited templates are available in the free site ◦ The options in the paid site are completely different than the free site  No easy way to mask a link to a URL in Prezi  Option to embed presenter notes doesn’t exist
  • 7.  When changing font sizes, change the overall template otherwise you don’t really know the size of the font if you edit text as shown on screen  Uploading a PPT or PDF is easy and effective
  • 8.  Both Sway and Prezi offer a new way to present  Sway is great for general slide shows  Sway needs to mature and offer more enhanced features  Prezi is better for presenting mixed data  Prezi is better for story telling  I enjoy using both
