Hebrew in Prezis

If any of you are interested in using Prezis (like the one Dr. Levisohn used in his introductory presentation) adding Hebrew can be daunting.

Here’s the “easy” way (you’ll see why I put easy in quotes soon enough)

Go to Prezi.com and search for Kuperman. You will find a Hebrew template. Save a copy to YOUR OWN account, and then click EDIT.

I have done the dirty work here of recoding the CSS to use the right fonts for Hebrew.

The next hurdle – YOU HAVE TO TYPE HEBREW BACKWARDS.

But, that’s not as tough as it sounds. Go to FLIP MY TEXT and paste in your text. Then by clicking a button, you can reverse the direction, copy it (CTRL+A, then CTRL+C) and then pasting it (CTRL+V) into Prezi.

Is it worth it? Only you can be the judge. Power Point does a good job for a lot of things, and handles Hebrew natively. Prezi has novelty on its side.
