Hello,

The presentation keeps freezing in the middle of slide 36 and I cannot advance to the next slide without completing that slide. Please let me know if you have any suggestions of what I can try to make this work. I have tried accessing it on my phone as well as my computer and it freezes on both.

Thanks,
Sara
