can someone please elaborate on the presentation mode mentioned below?

I had not hear of it before, so I'll try the help, but it might be helpful to
hear from users how they like this mode.

I'm not even sure of how to go into this mode, unless it is referring to
MathReader for Mathematica.

Any thoughts?  ... Thanks ... Wilson
