Re: Tips for accessing Microsoft PowerPoint

                I survived hundreds of Power Point presentations and suffered through the related bodies of text by converting the files into more manageable formats, including MS Word, RTF and PDF.  With respect to the visual component, some older technologies are still useful, including raised-line drawing kits.  Of course, now you can obtain some access to the visual information with Seeing AI and other object recognition software. Where there is a will, there is a way.

Subject: [nvda] Tips for accessing Microsoft PowerPoint


Hey everyone. I'm studying at University this year (law if anyone's interested). Anyway, unfortunately I'm having to repeat the year because of various reasons and as a consequence, I happen to know that most if not all of my lecturers for the law papers love PowerPoint. I, on the other hand, don't. I positively despise it, in fact and always want to throw this laptop at the wall when I find this type of file.
As you can probably see, I have an awful relationship with the software, so could someone point me to some resources for using it? My preference would be using it with NVDA, but they can be more general as well.
Thanks for any help you can give.
From Michael.
