[Athen] Powerpoint, screenreaders and text boxes

I've been playing around with PowerPoint (2013 for Windows) and NVDA. It's
always been emphasized not to use text boxes and instead to use the slide
layouts but I notice that NVDA reads the text boxes without
problem although you may need to rearrange the order in the selection pane.
I can see that the text boxes are missing from the outline view but I can't
see to get NVDA to read that pane in any case.
Does the admonition against text boxes still apply?
