Phonetic guides are a feature of the Microsoft Office Language Packs, a download that you can purchase online at the Microsoft website and that integrate with your existing PowerPoint program (see Resources). Both simplified and traditional Chinese are a language options in the pack, however a separate program update is required for Pinyin to display properly in the phonetic guide. This update is published by Microsoft and is free to download; once installed you can use it with all the programs in the Microsoft Office Suite, including PowerPoint.
