                talk.cls -- A LaTeX class for presentations



Abstract
========

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 me are more than welcome!


Requirements
============

The talk class requires the packages

        amsmath,
        pgf,
        multido,
        hyperref.

They can all be obtained from http://www.ctan.org. For further documentation see
talkdoc.pdf.

Changes
=======


v. 1.0.1:

- Typesetting slides in minipages now, thus allowing for footnotes.

- Added commands for changing colours in greybars.sty. Thus renamed greybars
  to sidebars.

v. 1.0.2:

- \title and \author commands now support short versions as optional arguments.

- Problem with the papersize in screen mode under pdflatex fixed.

v. 1.1:

- talk is now compatible with and requires pgf version 1.18.

- talk no longer requires the graphicx package.

- \@makeslide is now executed inside a pgfpicture environment. Existing style
  packages may have to be adapted.

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!
