I am wondering if a presentation created in Keynote can be reviewed in its 'original' form (with text and images, etc), if sent to a PC user, without iWork, before this presentation is seen by a larger audience?

    To play a presentation created in Keynote on a Windows computer it has to be converted to a PouwerPoint file:

     

    after the Keynote is    file > export > Powerpoint > next   > save

     

    The end users must have PowerPoint or PowerPoint Viewer installed on the computer.

    This gets complicated specifying what works and what does notbut a basic guide is:

     

    Use  text that has the same font or similar on both systems    ( example; Arial is available on both )

     

    use simple transitions and builds that are similar on both systems.

     

     

    A good idea is to test how it plays back on a PC before handing the show over to the user.
