PowerPoint VS. MS Photo Story 3

While PowerPoint is ubiquitous, found on every computer members of that class are likely to encounter at work, Microsoft's Photo Story is easier and friendlier for creating enhanced slide shows (captions and sound), a wonderful approach for language teachers. Unfortunately, Photo Story 3 still appears to have some compatibility issues with Windows VISTA (my own home PC's OS, darn)...and so in creating the sample I've uploaded here, I was not able to access the Microphone Wizard to adjust the volume :( Otherwise, this was a remarkably easy to create slide show, just the sort of thing teachers would want to do with their language learners.
