9. Hotspots

A special type of hyperlink is a 'hotspot'.

A hotspot is where part of an image is set up as a hyperlink. As you hover the mouse over the hotspot, the cursor usually changes to a hand or something else to indicate that a link is available.

Clicking on the hotspot might take you to another part of the presentation or it might pop up a more detailed view of the image.

Examples of the use of hotspots in presentations:

A map of the United States. When you click on one of the states, a more detailed map of that particular state pops up.

An image of the human body. When you click on a section, perhaps the heart, you are taken to a slide containing a video and more information about the heart.
