[duxuser] Re: PowerPoint files


Hi all,

Can I directly print a PowerPoint file? That is, if I have a PowerPoint file
that has text and embedded graphics, could I print that file as is with the
graphics and text?

Hi Steve, 
Thank you so much for posting these steps on the list! I have been trying to
Braille about three power point files in the past week. Thank you Betsy for
asking the question!

        Betsy,
        
        Here are some notes I wrote a while ago for someone wanting to
Braille
        off a PowerPoint document:
        
        1. From PowerPoint, File menu, Save as, change Save As type from
        Presentation to Outline/RTF and click save.  The presentation will
be
        saved with the filetype ".rtf".
        
        2. From Word, File menu, Open, change Files of type to All Files or
Rich
        Text Format, and load the document.
        
        3. Check the following:
        * The titles of each slide will be in Heading 1 style; these can
        be left.
        * The bullet points within each slide may be Normal or a heading
        style - change them all to Normal.
        * Go through each slide and make sure the Normal style paragraphs
        are consistent.
        * If there are lists within lists, i.e. indented paragraphs, these
        indents may need to be re-input.
        
        4. Save the Word document.
        
        5. From the DBT menu, choose Duxbury Braille. 
        
        6. Choose the template as usual, and check that the import filter is
        "Microsoft Word 6 or later". 
        
        Hope this helps,
        
        Steve

        I know we've been down this trail before, but I can't seem to find 
        anything in my files about getting the text out of the powerpPoint 
        files into Word and on to Duxbury, 10.5. I'm using xp Home. I am
able 
        to open the .ppt files. Thanks for any and all suggestions.
        Betsy
