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?

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

more issues regarding PowerPoint
and I hope that JAWS and NVDA will improve the
user experience in Microsoft PowerPoint.

I use Office 365. When I open a
presentation and activate presentation mode
pressing F5, NVDA will not recognise tables,
headings and so on where JAWS does. It would be
helpful if I could read tables with NVDA in
Presentation Mode, is this possible at all?
