Hi all, Greetings!

Has anyone tried to explore design ideas feature in PowerPoint? Design
ideas will let you create visually pleasing and well organized
presentations by suggesting a list of blueprints. Upon selecting any one of
suggested design ideas, we can observe that pleasing changes in our
presentations. As of today screen readers just announces design ideas as
design idea 1, design idea 2 etc. but no meaningful alt text. What kind of
alt text can we expect on these design ideas to help screen reader users
understand these design ideas as it contains spatial arrangement of
objects, color and border information etc.
