Is there a pen type thing to plug into a PC, that allows me to write on things like Powerpoint slides, to annotate them? I want to be able to save the notes on top of the slides. It's for giving online lectures.

I don't have a touch screen, or a tablet, in this instance.

Thanks.

yep , they can be quite cheap and work, bamboo is a make i have used in the past

a "pad" to write on and a pen is ok but it is a bit odd writing on a blank surface and seeing it on a screen
works ok with a bit of practice
for words tis probably ok, for drawing or graphics tis a bit tricky to learn

this machine comes with an on screen one but it comes with lots of stuff including tilt and a touch screen which is ideal for writing ,drawing or graphics

Yeah, this is for Louise, who's trying to prepare lessons from home for the kids. They're recorded and uploaded, so they can work in their own timetables. Normally, of course, she'd have a white/smart board in the classroom, and scribble on stuff as she went. Now, not so much, thanks to the 'rona.

Looks like a forty quid graphics tablet is the answer.

I got one of these - a bit more than 40 quid, but very good

Only £68, so not mental.

Can you annotate in Powerpoint with it? That's its sole use...
