Can google "read" powerpoints and pdf's?

I've been learning powerpoint 2013 recently and came across a section on putting "alt" text with pictures, similar to the way you do it in wordpress, but of course it is only mentioned as a way for vision impaired users to get an idea what your picture was about.

This got me to thinking about the content of my powerpoint presentation and whether google can read the text for indexing purposes. I know the big g can't see inside of videos (yet), but it hadn't occurred to me if they could index the content of .pdf's or .ppt's.

Does anyone know for sure if google can index content in either of these two formats?
