Thanks very much for this powerpoint information.

It is extremely helpful, and I'm going to save and print off the powerpoint 
command list in Braille for future reference.

Normally, I would not bother folks on the list for stuff that is readily 
available, but I'm up against a deadline here, and am having trouble finding 
time to take the tutorial.

So, thanks again!

tom, sorry about that to get the help in powerpoint you need to do a insert
+ f1 twice and not just f1 twice
insert f1 will give you a discription of the slide you are on and insert f1
twice will take you to help and powerpoint will be highlitted and just hit
f6 and it will move you to the other pain and that is all the info
