Teaching ASL: Program to display words

Dear Dr. Bill,
I first want to say how much I enjoy your websites. They have helped me a lot with my desire to learn ASL on my own. My question is what program you use in your classes to display words and type sentences. I work for an educational theater program that has a workshop component centered around literacy and whatever program you use looks like it would be perfect for our uses as it doesn't show any computer icons or anything and seems easy to input text into.
Thank you so much for your time.

Hello :)
I use a combination of PowerPoint and Microsoft Word. The ones with black backgrounds are PowerPoints. The white background upon which I type is "Microsoft Word." I just adjust the "view" settings to get rid of the border so that it fills up the whole screen with the document. I toggle back and forth between the two programs using ALT+TAB (on a Windows PC).
