I remember that Woody claimed in one of his earliest books (since quite contritely retracted) that everything about Word could be controlled by macros. My interest is Powerpoint and how much of its UI can be controlled by VBA. Is everything accessible? How much of its API has been revealed?
I realize this is pretty vague. I haven't learned any programming language since ALGOL and Fortran IV in my college days. And some spaghetti code BASIC with my C64. But PPT would be oh so much more useful to me with what would seem to be a minor change in the way I can control its existing abilities. So, an assessment of whether it would take me a year or 10 years to adapt it is my interest.
