API's to control powerpoint presentation in slide show mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for a way to control slide show programatically, was going through several web resources but i found none for Mac OS platform. Like activeX/c# api's for windows platform are there any api's available for Mac OS. 

    The actual need arose from a hackthon where my idea is to use an IOT device to receive signal and convert them to a control signal which can be forwarded to powerpoint slide show so that it reflects. ex: i like to go to next slide when a certain signal received through the IOT interface.  I'm able to convert the signal into a specific control signal at this moment ( right arrow, left arrow, mouse clicks etc) but cannot cascade the signal to the slide show.

    please help me here.
