I'm doing a course and have to create and deliver a presentation this Friday. While I do have a Windows laptop from work that I can fall back on, I was hoping to use my own MacBook for this, as I have been doing for note-taking etc on the course.
However I am encountering major issues with VoiceOver when trying to use both PowerPoint and Keynote on the Mac.
In PowerPoint, I can't even seem to create a slide. I can select a new slide ok, but when I try to edit the content of the text boxes, nothing happens. It just won't seem to enter any text for me.
I'm also having trouble when playing a presentation. When I imported a slideshow that I had made previously on a PC to test it out, I can start the slideshow playing, but VoiceOver does not read any of the content as I progress through the presentation.
Similarly, Keynote is very limited when actually presenting. As I move to a new slide, it is only reading the title of the slide, but none of the content.
Am I doing something wrong or are these apps really this inadequate with VoiceOver? Any advice appreciated.
