I'm about to start working on series of slide-show presentations for
educational/teaching purposes...

While I was investigating the possibility of using (Pandoc) Markdowm to author
prsentation, I noticed that e.g. reveal.js
(https://github.com/hakimel/reveal.js) has capability to create 'speaker

"reveal.js comes with a speaker notes plugin which can be used to present
per-slide notes in a separate browser window. The notes window also gives you a
preview of the next upcoming slide so it may be helpful even if you haven't
written any notes. Press the 's' key on your keyboard to open the notes window.

A speaker timer starts as soon as the speaker view is opened. You can reset it
to 00:00:00 at any time by simply clicking/tapping on it."

However, just a thought that I would have to deal with downloading npm stuff,
running local server etc. instead of just having single PDF file is not
attractive to me at all.

However, I know that one can do it with LaTeX Beamer class - see e.g.


and there are even applications to help with that like pdfpc:


and wonder what would be the best way to do it in ConTeXt and/or whether
someone has some experience with ConTeXt-generated PDFs and e.g. pdfpc?


One who sees inaction in action, and action in inaction,
is intelligent among men, and he is in the transcendental position,
although engaged in all sorts of activities.
