Presenters often desire to use some sort of remote-control device to advance slides or perform other functions while giving their talks. Unfortunately, the underlying OpenOffice.org code knows nothing about the Apple Remote that comes with newer Macs. However, a number of other remote-control solutions exist that do work with NeoOffice.
