Create & make available 100 individual audio files saying "slide 1", "slide 2", "slide 100"

Blind user of PowerPoint desires to be able to know what slide is being presented to an audience, and whether or not the next slide has advanced correctly, or advanced too many slides. PowerPoint allows for the insertion into a slide, of an audio file ("slide 3", "slide 4", "slide 100") which can "autoplay" upon the slide be opened. This will announce to the blind PowerPoint presenter which slide is currently being displayed to the audience, and allow the blind presenter to know whether or not the correct slide has been advanced to. Some individuals would be able to record their own audio files, stating "slide 5", "slide 6", etc, while other MS customers may have medical conditions (i.e., stuttering) which prevent them from making their own audio recordings of the slide numbers. If MS was able to create and make available 100 individual audio files (maybe 200 - 100 in a male voice, and 100 in a female voice) of these slides numbers, it would be helpful to some of their disabled customers.
