[Blindmath] Printing Braille PowerPoint

For power points, I go to the outline view of the power point. It takes out all the graphics, and formats the text in outline form. Sometimes I will set everything to start on the far left of the page, but otherwise, it is something that takes second to do. Was I ever doing a jig when I found the outline view!

"The real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight.  The
real problem is the misunderstanding and lack of education that
exists.  If a blind person has the proper training and
opportunity, blindness can be reduced to a mere physical
nuisance."Kenneth Jernigan

Office Convert is a set of free, Windows console-mode utilities that I wrote for converting to text from various Microsoft Office formats, including PowerPoint.  It is available at www.EmpowermentZone.com/OfficeConvert.zip

We have a braille embosser with Tiger Software Suite, but the software apparently doesn't work inside of PowerPoint and pulling all the text out of PowerPoint and loading into Word is long and tedious.  Anybody have any ideas or experience in converting PowerPoint to Braille or some intermediate state I can work with?
