talk – A LaTeX class for presentations

The talk doc­u­ment class al­lows you to cre­ate slides for screen pre­sen­ta­tions or print­ing on trans­paren­cies. It also al­lows you to print per­sonal notes for your talk. You can cre­ate over­lays and dis­play struc­ture in­for­ma­tion (cur­rent sec­tion / sub­sec­tion, ta­ble of con­tents) on your slides. The main fea­ture that dis­tin­guishes talk from other pre­sen­ta­tion classes like beamer or pros­per is that it al­lows the user to de­fine an ar­bi­trary num­ber of slide styles and switch be­tween these styles from slide to slide. This way the slide lay­out can be adapted to the slide con­tent. For ex­am­ple, the ti­tle or con­tents page of a talk can be given a slightly dif­fer­ent lay­out than the other slides.

The talk class makes no re­stric­tions on the slide de­sign what­so­ever. The en­tire look and feel of the pre­sen­ta­tion can be de­fined by the user. The style def­i­ni­tions should be put in a sep­a­rate sty file. Cur­rently the pack­age comes with only one set of pre-de­fined slide styles (grey­bars.sty). Con­tri­bu­tions from peo­ple who are ar­tis­ti­cally more gifted than the au­thor are more than wel­come!
