If you you have access to a linux box, one option is to open the file in 
OOo.org (openoffice) Then print to file to create a ps file. Process this 
file to pdf with standard linux tools and set the pdf file to view as slides 
if this is required. The result is the same powerpoint presentation except in 
pdf format which does allow you to automate the cycling of slides should that 
be required. Alternatively you can output each slide to a single pdf if that 
is required. You can further process the pdf file with the reportlab 
collection of tools.
