Converting PowerPoint Slide show to HTML5 - Embedded PDF files in PowerPoint

Oct 27, 2020

I'm trying to convert a PowerPoint file over to HTML5.  In PowerPoint, I'm using PDF files for narration script files and pictures to avoid using zip files.  So, I'm embedding a file, which happens to be just PDF files.  Overall, the PowerPoint works pretty good, but now we've got Articulate and hoping for a simple conversion of PowerPoint files over to HTML5. 

When I go to convert the PowerPoint file, none of the PDF files open.  So, I'm wondering what other steps I need to follow to make this work with publishing to HTML5. 

If you need more info, let me know.  Thanks..
