Accessibility and Presentations
Plan to make your presentations accessible to everyone in your audience. Use a large font with good contrast. Verbally describe important images and information in case some cannot see it well. For online presentations, ensure a screen-reading program can read all of the information in the correct order. Caption audio-visual information or provide a transcript. Provide graphical information in another format. Note that some software makes adding accessibility easier (Google Slides, PowerPoint) than others (Prezi, Haiku, Adobe Spark).
With Google Slides, you can create, edit, collaborate, and present wherever you are. Free; Linked to your UH Gmail account and your Google Drive.
