Chwedl presentations - help page
What is this?
This is an online version of a slide presentation. It's a story, an interactive narrative. A show.
The underlying platform is called Chwedl (pronounced "shwedle" /ˈχweːdɛl/) which our team designed and built.
How do I move to different slides?
Choose from any of these methods:
- use the mouse/pointer to swipe left or right
- move the slider, located at the bottom of the slides
- scroll and click on any slide thumbnail
- press left-arrow or up-arrow to go left
press right-arrow or down-arrow to go right
- click the "toc" tab then select a section from the outline
- modify the URL to point to the name of a specific slide
Can I download the slides?
You already have! Each Chwedl presentation is a single-page app. Once you begin reading, you have already downloaded the entire presentation.
How can I share these slides?
The public URL is shareable, and each slide has a unique "anchor name" so that it can be shared. See "copy to clipboard" link just to the left of the license/copyright.
Are the links clickable?
Yes, the URL links are all clickable. You can also click the "links" tab to see a list of all the URLs references on any slide.
Why do some slides say "subscription required"?
You need a subscription to view some parts of the content in Chwedl.
What is that strange symbol on the first slide?
That's called a QR code. You can take a photo with a smartphone to automatically load a Chwedl presentation. We use those for public presentations, so people in the audience can download and read on mobile.
Can I present slides in full-screen mode?
Press the F key or click the full-screen iconto view in full-screen mode. Press the Escape key to return.
Where can I view detailed info about a presentation?
Click "info" tab to view the author(s), publication date, abstract, and other metadata.
Pam fod Derwen yn defnyddio cymaint o enwau yn yr iaith Gymraeg?
In other words, why does Derwen use so many names from the Welsh language? That is a curiousity lost in the mists of time /|\
