How can I populate the Caption field in SlideShow with the caption text from Organizer

I have entered caption text data on many of my JPEG photo files using Adobe Elements Organizer. I then used the “Save Metadata to files” option so that the caption text is written to the IPTC metadata field “Description”.  I now want to use Create a SlideShow feature in Organizer to create a movie.  I was disappointed to see that the caption text I entered into each photo file is not imported into the caption field for each slide in the SlideShow.  How can I get the caption field in SlideShow to be populated with the text that I have already entered in the caption field in the Organizer?  There must be a way to do this.  If this can not be done then this is a very significant shortcoming of this software.  In the past I have used ProShow Producer to produce picture SlideShows and that software was able to import may of the IPTC metadata fields included the Description Field. 

It only works with the impromptu slideshow on pc. Select an album/thumbnails and press F11. Then press the play button.

Thanks.  That sure works but disappointing that it will not work in SlideShow or the video editor.  How does one put in a request to have this functionality considered for a future release of the software?
