Improvement of SPEAK funtion in PowerPoint
SPEAK has been around for a long time but it's not that practical. You must select each text box in the Normal Presentation View and press SPEAK.
Given that many of us are now doing virtual presentations, not all microphones, accents and vocies are equal - and we need to think about accessibilty options. I've had clients with speech problems and so listening to online presentations with poor mics and speech issues makes it impossilbe for them to be heard properly.
Can we improve the SPEAK funtion to read from the PRESENATION SLIDESHOW in full - additional options (gender voices) be availble in ppt directly, without having to go Windows Setting.
With the advancement of AI and subtitles, better text-to-speech options in PowerPoint is a must.

Currently dictate feature is useless , it is not very intelligent to understand what will go in heading or what will have to create as a list . It just types what you say.
I end up doing formatting manually and spending more time .
The feature do not help me in improving my productivity.
From accessibility point of view , how to ensure it udnerstand if I am asking it to copy my dictation or its a keyword to take specific action like Create a box or create a list
