Re: Accessibility of Word and PowerPoint

I haven't looked at either PowerPoint or the PPT viewer from an
accessibility POV.
If the app or viewer is installed on a given computer already, it might not
be too bad for, say, a screen reader user to work with, depending on the
presentation itself.
What about HTML versions of the PPTs instead? PPT's own HTML isn't very
friendly, but we've got a tool that gives you a lot more control over the
HTML (and hence its accessibility) that PPT makes.
