PowerPoint Accessibility - Self-Paced


PowerPoint presentations increase visual impact, can improve student focus, and are a great platform to provide additional insight with annotations and highlights. Ensure all of your students have access to your resources!

This self-paced micro-course will focus on the essential elements needed to create an accessible PowerPoint, explain the basics of PowerPoint’s accessibility tools, and test if a PowerPoint you did not create is inaccessible.
