Hello everyone,

If Power Point files are up on a web site to be used for remote training
what is the best way to make those accessible?
I am assuming Power Point files up on web sites are not that accessible.

Can you just use the save as option in Power Point XP and save in html
then post hat html to the web page or is it better to use a wizard to
convert the Power Point files to html.

I found the following wizard.
Office Web Publishing Accessibility Tool
http://www.rehab.uiuc.edu/office/sysreq.html

Short description from web page.
Our Accessibility Wizard simplifies the task of converting PowerPoint
presentations, Word documents,
and (in the future) Excel spreadsheets to accessible HTML through an
easy-to-use user interface and automation of many of the details of
conversion.

Does this tool work well or are there others that work better for
converting Power Point files to an accessible form of html if possible?

Thanks for your help.

Have a great day.
