e152 – Is Accessibility Accessible?

Show Notes – Episode #152

  • One definition of accessibility is “…making information, activities, and/or environments sensible, meaningful, and usable for as many people as possible.”. For us in the presentation world, accessibility is a consideration for slide design. And slide design can address accessibility categories of contrast, font size, captioning, screen reader setup, alt text, and much more. But the real question is, are there tools within PowerPoint to enable presentation designers to make a presentation accessible?
