Charles:

The computer I'm currently using is a Windows XP machine.

However, I am getting a laptop with windows 7 up and running on Jaws, so maybe I can try your suggestion shortly.

Thanks very much!

Tom,

There is an application under Win 7 and Vista Accessories called "snipping
tool" that may be of help in extracting data from power point. It can be
used to take screen snapshots such as graphics, text, and associated
anitations.
I have not used this program but you can find more info from windows 7 help
and support link.

I don't know where to get Jamal's text pal, but your second suggestion about
the outline may do the trick for now.

Thanks!

The very best way is to use Jamal Mazrui's TextPal. The next best way is
to f6 to outline view, select all, then copy and paste it to a new
document.

Good luck!

Hi, everyone.

Can someone tell me the easiest way to extract and save the text from the
slides in a powerpoint presentation?

I have a powerpoint presentation here from work, and all I need is the
text content for future reference.

As best as I can tell, the presentation is done in Office 2007 powerpoint
format.

Thanks!
