How to check the slide’s reading order

To ensure that the Title and body text are identified correctly in each slide, choose the Outline view. In this view the text and the order in which it will be read by a screen reader can be seen. Text can also be changed directly in the Outline view.

Notice that tables, graphics and pictures will not show in Outline view.

Any text not in pre-existing Content Placeholders (text placed in text boxes that are manually added to the slide) or in the ‘notes’ section will not appear in the Outline view.

Text in text boxes will be read by screen readers, but not always in the correct order. Text in ‘notes’ can be read if requested, but will not be automatically read by a screen reader.
