Controlling Heading tags in PowerPoint


From: Joseph Feria-Galicia

Hello WebAim community. I am new to this listserv but in need of guidance
creating PowerPoint templates that require minimum remediation once the PPT
is exported to Acrobat as a PDF. The problem I'm having is controlling the
heading tags associated with each placeholder container so each layer (when
applicable) is assigned an H1, H2, H3 or P. At this time, some titles
export as "Art" which may be associated with changing font size and color,
but I'm unsure. Regardless, I'd like some of the H1 tags that appear later
in the document to be tagged as H2 in PowerPoint. Is this possible?
I'm using Windows 7, PowerPoint 2010, and MacOS 10.9.5 PowerPoint Version
Any help is appreciated.
