The University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign has developed a
plug-in to Microsoft Office (Powerpoint, Word and Excel) that
generates valid (clean) html + CSS for styling and by default
guides authors to create WCAG Double-A compliant html versions
of Powerpoint and Word documents.

There is a demo available at

A sample Powerpoint conversion at:

The full version is $39.95 US in single license quantities.
There are discounts for multiple purchases and site licensing
options available. The funds generated from sales go back
into the development of the tool, there are many features we
would like to implement to improve the tool and we need
additional resources to continue development. We also need to
move the tool to a commercial model before grant resources are
exhausted for the continued availability and improvement.

The US Social Security administration recently purchased a
1,200 computer site license.
