LaTeX can be used to write presentations to be shown as overhead transparencies or with a beamer. A series of LaTeX classes has been written for this purpose. Among these are FoilTeX and beamer. The list Screen Presentation Tools maintained by Michael Wiedmann is a useful guide to find the appropriate LaTeX class/package.
A solution for my own requirements is elpres. Elpres is intended as a minimal and simple LaTeX document class for creation of beamer presentations. For installation, copy elpres.cls to a location where LaTeX can find it. It is recommended to use elpres with pdfLaTeX.
Download: elpres.cls (v0.3), documentation: html, pdf. Elpres can also be found on CTAN. Elpres entry in the TeX calalogue online.
Example of a simple presentation generated with elpres: pdf, sourcecode.
