Why to Convert
The EPUB format is a popular format for e-books, but it is not compatible with PowerPoint presentations. To make an EPUB file compatible with PowerPoint, it must be converted to the PPS format. This allows the user to view the EPUB file in a PowerPoint presentation, which can be shared with others.

What is EPUB File Format?
An EPUB file, also known as an Open eBook File, is a standardized format developed by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). It is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and XHTML (eXtensible Hypertext Markup Language). EPUB files are designed for reading digital books and publications on various electronic devices such as e-readers, tablets, and smartphones.
EPUB files consist of three main components. The first component is the spine, which contains the main text of the book and defines the order in which the pages should be read. It provides the structural framework for the content.
The second component is the manifest, which serves as a catalog of all the files that make up the EPUB book. This includes the spine, cover image, table of contents, and any additional content. The manifest ensures that all the necessary files are properly linked and organized within the EPUB package.
The third component is the container, which stores the EPUB files in a compressed format. The container helps reduce file size and enables efficient distribution and storage of EPUB books.
EPUB files can be created using various software programs such as Adobe InDesign, Sigil, and Calibre. These tools provide authors and publishers with the ability to create, edit, and format EPUB books according to the specifications set by the IDPF. With EPUB being an open and widely adopted standard, readers can enjoy a seamless reading experience across different devices and platforms.
What is PPS File Format?
The PPS file format is an extension used by Microsoft PowerPoint to save presentations specifically designed for slideshow purposes. It stands for “PowerPoint Slide Show” and is closely related to the PPT (PowerPoint Presentation) format. PPS files contain a collection of slides, each with its own content, layout, and formatting.
Unlike PPT files, which open in the PowerPoint editor, PPS files are intended to be opened directly in slideshow mode. When a PPS file is opened, it launches the presentation in full-screen mode, immediately displaying the slides in the order they were created. This allows for a seamless and uninterrupted presentation experience without the need for manual navigation.
PPS files are commonly used for sharing presentations with others who only need to view the slides rather than edit them. By saving a presentation as a PPS file, you ensure that recipients can open and view the presentation as intended without accidentally modifying the content. This makes it a convenient format for distributing slideshows for meetings, conferences, or self-running presentations.
The PPS format retains all the visual elements, animations, transitions, and multimedia content included in the original PowerPoint presentation. It provides a convenient way to deliver polished and professional-looking slideshows that maintain their intended design and effects.
To open and view PPS files, recipients typically need a compatible software application such as Microsoft PowerPoint, PowerPoint Viewer, or other presentation software capable of reading PPS files. These applications allow users to enjoy the full presentation experience without the need for authoring or editing capabilities.
