Our association would like to hire freelance content experts to develop short narrated ppt presentations (hopefully in adobe presenter) that we could then publish to the web. However, not all our authors will necessarily have this software. Is there some sort of roving license or subscription we can buy that will temporarily provide the author with access to the right version of the software, for the short time period they are under contract to us? (Sorry if this is not the right forum for this question.)
Since Presenter is installed software, you could uninstall and reinstall the application on the appropriate individuals computer, as needed. The licenses shouldn't be tied to a specific individual.
However, in my experience that can be a pain to teach someone a new application on a regular basis, so I have found it easier to leave one (or a few) individuals with the Presenter application who will be responsible for compiling the audio with the presentation, and publishing out to meet your needs. Then the individual who is recording the audio can do so in PPT, or in another application (Audacity from SourceForge is free). Then the person using Presenter would just import the audio and apply it appropriately to the presentation. This may reduce employee hour over head, as it may be faster to use this workflow than to teach and support a new individual using presenter every few weeks/months.
Presenter 9 has subscription option - it will suit your need. Check out @ http://store1.adobe.com/cfusion/store/html/index.cfm?store=OLS-US&event=displayProduct&cat egoryPath=/Applications/Presenter&distributionMethod=FULL
