UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR PRESENTATIONS
It is the presenters' responsibility to ensure that their presentations include Universal Design concepts and are accessible to all users.
COLOR and CONTRAST
Ensure that COLOR is not the only means of conveying importance.
Use sufficient CONTRAST for text and background colors. If your document has a high level of contrast between text and background, more people can see and use the content.
VISUAL CONTENT and ALT TEXT
Avoid using text in images as the sole method of conveying important information. If you must use an image with text in it, repeat that text in the document. Add ALT TEXT to any visual content that briefly describes the image and its intent. Visual content includes pictures, charts, embedded objects, and videos.
DOCUMENT HEADINGS and STYLES
Use built-in headings and styles. To preserve tab order and to make it easier for screen readers to read your documents, use a logical heading order and the built-in formatting tools in Word before saving to PDF.
Use a microphone or headset for clear audio.
When sharing your screen, only share the desired screen and not the whole desktop.
Use descriptive language while demonstrating applications, apps, or webpages. Avoid saying “click here” or “go here and click,” and describe where you are directing the user and what they should expect to find.
Slides should be clear and concise and not over-cluttered with text and graphics. Read text on the screen aloud during presentation to ensure all persons can hear the information.
Backgrounds should be professional and clean. Solid backgrounds or virtual backgrounds are ideal for online presentations.
