Viewers and Annotation
Mathematica's dynamic interactivity system makes it easy to view and annotate any object in a dynamic way. Building on Mathematica's symbolic programming architecture, constructs can be nested and combined in arbitrary ways, and both their content and control can be fully dynamic and programmatic.

SlideView view any list of objects as a sequence of slides
FlipView flip between displaying two or more objects
Labeled associate any label with any object
Framed put a frame around an object
