My first guess would be to use ABBYY FineReader to convert the PDF to Word. You could set the settings to be exact copy and to keep images. It should retain all of the visual aspects of the document while providing the text too.

What’s the current thinking on converting slide presentations – especially those with many images, to Word?

Student has meteorology handouts in PDF that were originally slides. We’re trying to find out now if they were created originally in PowerPoint, Keynote or Google slides – we cannot tell from the PDF files. Student can see the visual materials
well, but prefers to read and annotate in Word. We need to correctly retain the visual elements while still making text that can be easily annotated and read with speech.

I’d like to get the original slides and find a way to simply export them to Word without loosing any information.

Meanwhile my student is opening the PDF files in K3000, but she’s not a happy camper.
