Hi all

I have a presentation to give and as part of it I want to create a standard graph which is simple enough. 

However, what I want to happen is that I speak for a bit, press the spacebar and the 1st bar of the graph pops up.  Speak for a bit more, hit the space bar and the 2nd bar of the graph comes up and so forth. 

I thought power point may have been able to do this but I can't get it to work in there.  Any suggestions on how I can achieve this and with what software???

if it is a simple graph, just use powerpoint to recreate the graph out of normal powerpoint shapes/lines etc...

a bit of work, but if its just a one off...

Another way would just to have several of the same slides and have an updated graph on each slide. i.e. create some graphs in excel or something and then copy them in sequence into the slides so it gives you the appearance that it's just one slide.

There's probably a better way of doing it but I dont use powerpoint all that often that I know how. =o)

Good luck.
