Double click the word in your title. In this instance no Spanish translation is given. So click one of the slides and it will take you to the definition of the English word slide.

Diapositiva is the context that you are looking for because we use the same word for a Powerpoint slide presentation as for a photographic slide that we would show in an actual projector.

This is 100 percent correct. It is a word that comes from the old style overhead projectors and is used with PPT. : ) - jphip, JUN 2, 2014

wrong context, but very good examples otherwise. welcome to the forum if nobody has said so yet. =) - DJ_Huero, NOV 27, 2009

Here is an example of "slide," as in "will slide through our fingers."

O los gobiernos acuerdan adoptar medidas decisivas o la salud climática se nos deslizará de entre los dedos. Either the governments agree to adopt decisive measures or the climatic health will slip through our fingers.
