How to make an instructional slide show for a DVD Player

I think the best solution would be to save slide show as it is and use the DVD remote's PAUSE key. I have successfully used this method.

Set slide duration not too long but long enough for you to be able to decide if it needs to paused. If you think it takes 20 seconds to read / see a slide, set duration to 30 seconds. Turn off OSD from DVD player so that when you click pause, the disturbing on screen display does not show pause symbol on top of your slide.
