Introduction to Presentation Accessibility in PowerPoint

May 21, 2022

Length: 57 minutes
Presenter: Peter Wu
Host: Ric Bretschneider
About the webinar

Join Peter Wu, a Principle Software Engineer on Microsoft’s PowerPoint team, as he shows you how to make your PowerPoint presentation accessible so that everyone understands your message.

You will learn how the use of color and contrast affect the readability of the content, how logical structure, order, and text descriptions are necessary for people using screen readers to understand the content, and how you can add captions and subtitles for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

You will also see examples of accessible and inaccessible content, demos of how people with disabilities consume the content, and demos of how to use the features in PowerPoint to make the content accessible.

Moderated by Ric Bretschneider.
