Fonts not working in Teams Meeting PP Live

IMK 421 Reputation points


We have a powerpoint file, which came from customer. This pp file contains fonts, that are not installed in our devices (Win11) but the fonts are embeded in the pp file (File -> Options -> Save -> Preserve fidelity when sharing this presentation -setting is enabled).

This file shows fonts correctly in Powerpoint Desktop (Win11), Powerpoint Live via browser (PowerPoint for the web) and viewed via Teams desktop. But when we try to present this file in Teams meeting using Powerpoint Live, it shows fonts wrong (see screen shot below). Also, in Teams meeting, small preview slide windows do show these fonts correctly, which is odd..

User reported that there have not been any problems 1-2 weeks ago with fonts in pp's from this customer company and earlier pp's from this customer company, have contained the same customer company font.

What can we do?

    Just sign to follow if Microsoft will invent how to make PPT live shows the same fonts as in regular software. We have a lot of presentations and PP live only offers good quality of contained video and I was really insulted when I realized that our specific fonts are like hieroglyphs

    This is very odd problem, given the fact that Teams meeting Powerpoint Live uses Powerpoint for the Web. And files show correctly in Powerpoint for the Web but not in Teams meeting..
