Re: NVDA not reading slides in Presentation mode "slide show complete"

Mike Sedmak

A couple sanity check questions:

How many slides in the presentation?
Are you using f5 to start the presentation at the beginning?

In the past I have found that if I use f5 then escape then f5 a second
time, the slides are readable on the second time. YMMV

Subject: [nvda] NVDA not reading slides in Presentation mode "slide show


I am running the latest NVDA and PPT 2016. The files are not in protected
mode. In edit view, I can read the slides. However, in presentation mode
(after pressing F5), and all NVDA reads out loud is "slide show complete".
I hit space bar twice, and it exits the slide show.

Any thoughts on what the issue is? I have not had this issue before with
NVDA until the last 3 months or so. Before then, it has always worked well
with PPT.
