Best leveling compound?

Hi all, I need to level a floor before I put my backerboards down. The room is 15' X 20', and there is an area 12' X 5' close to one wall that has a 1/4" dip in it. Any suggestions on the best way to level this spot?

I have 2 open heating ducts in the floor, so if self leveling compound is the best approach, how should I cover these ducts?

Thank you, Bea

Hi, Sorry I should have specified. It's 3/4" plywood.

Thank you, Bea

It may be best to level the floor structurally from underneath by prying the plywood up to level and sistering the joists (adding a second joist to the side of original joists. and fastening the floor to the new joists.)
