This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

VBA code provided in any-way-of-converting-ppt-or-odf-to-beamer-or-org worked for me with ppt. I don't know with pptx. – Ignasi May 11 '13 at 17:05

Whoever downvoted this, could you leave a comment as to why? It's not an unreasonable question, although it has been asked already. – Alan Munn May 11 '13 at 17:13

There exists a project (amongst others), but it will not do all of the conversion stuff.

Creating scientific slideshows: see RTFBeamer

Anyway, maybe you have to convert your pptx to ppt.

Apart from that: Writing Beamer code without generation will be better.

A similar thread exists:

Any way of converting ppt or odf to beamer or org?

see the revision graph - a rollback was made to my impaired grammar. yes. subsequent, this grammar was removed due to another part of a sentence which reflects my research (ppt / pptx -> tex) better. anyway, it would be an alternative to edit the sentence without a rollback. no need to get into panic. – mnemonic May 11 '13 at 17:28
@Brent.Longborough your comment is not helpful but the answer by mnemonic was helpful :-) – user29701 May 11 '13 at 17:43
@user29701 Absolutely - I've deleted it – Brent.Longborough May 11 '13 at 17:52
