Re: PowerPoint: reading tables in presentation view

Hi, in the presentation mode unfortunately NVDA ignores many objects, like it is not even there, on the other hand, you have to use presentation mode to read the slide notes with ctrl shift s.
Furthermore, if the file is in the protected mode, you have to battle to get it reading, what I do is that I move the mouse with nvda+ numpad divide, then I press right click (numpad star).
However this works sometimes and sometimes I have to close and reopen etc, others just disable the protected mode.

Subject: Re: [nvda] PowerPoint: reading tables in presentation view
I second third and whatever number that request for better powwerpoint support. I need to use the program all the time and NVDA’s support is significantly lacking. I have not tried jaws and narrator.
One problem is tables as has already been highlighted in this thread. The next issue is the reporting of object and slide alignment. I need to know if all elements on a slide are visible. Yes, we do get that announcement but suppose I have a table obscured by a picture, where should I move the picture to make sure that both the table and picture are visible?
The last issue is playing media in slide show mode. I cannot activate any media in slide show mode.
There is training material on Powerpoint from nvaccess but it does not cover the above points.

Thank you, Ben and Eilana.
I agree, I think it would be good if we had better PowerPoint support. When I went to uni 10-15 years ago, I hardly ever had to use PowerPoint. Now I started another course and have to work through several presentations a week. And may be in business contexts, PowerPoint has been more widely used for a longer time.
