There is a site Scribd that will enable you to embed PowerPoint presentations into your post. An example can be seen at Malaysians have to change attitude to succeed.
I shall now describe how I did it. First, you must have a PowerPoint (ppt) file stored in your computer. At Scribd, you can either register first before you upload the ppt file or register first. The advantages of registering is you can edit and delete your uploaded files, view the statistics, make a Profile pages with links to your sites which may help you get more traffic to your sites plus improve the link popularity and PageRank.
Browse to your file, click "Upload", then "Publish". After a while, your file will be successfully uploaded and on the left, you will see a box with the script for you to paste into your post editor to display the PowerPoint presentation. Highlight the whole script (ctrl+A), copy to clipboard (ctrl+C) and paste it into the post editor window (ctrl+V). Now you will have to do a bit of tweaking to get the presentation to fit into the post.

Make sure that the "Preserve aspect ratio" is ticked, then enter a new width for the image. The height will automatically change to keep the image undistorted. In my case, I chose to use the new width of 399 pixels, and the height was automatically changed to 433. I then edited the two places for the width and the height in the script and it became
This edited script is then pasted into the post editor, and as you can see from Malaysians have to change attitude to succeed, the PowerPoint presentation fits nicely into the post.
