Animated Video: ‘What is Present Pal’?

Present Pal is a presentation software which improves public speaking, allowing users to deliver a more confident and prepared presentation.

Present Pal was created to assist the needs of individuals with dyslexia when presenting to their peers in education or the workplace. The software has an array of dyslexia friendly features such as colour overlays to reduce visual stress and pop up bubbles. Additionally, Present Pal fully integrates with Microsoft PowerPoint so that users can access their notes and control their slides at the same time!

Present Pal addresses so many of the anxieties I hear from students when it comes to presenting. It combines recommended techniques such as the use of cue cards, with visual adjustments such as screen tinting and font choice together with easy-to-use presentation control. Its roots may lie with DSA but this is a universally useful solution for anyone who needs to present.

I have recommended Present Pal for students with an SPLD and anxiety-based condition. The ability to break down their notes into easy to see/read sections helps greatly with poor working memory or when they are anxious. In addition, I have used this app myself when presenting

I am very impressed with this software. The discreet safety-net of the pop-up bubbles, and the simplified interface, will support students to deliver presentations with greater confidence and independence.
— Jeffrey Dale, Needs Assessor
I love the new App!! It’s been such a god send for my presentations at uni! And it’s been so fun to use. You’ve done a fantastic job to design something that’s so wonderful and easy to use for dyslexic students like myself...Also during my presentation I felt more confident than I ever had before.
