Why is PowerPoint used in the first place?

  • Site-wide license.

  • Low cost.

  • Familiarity with program.

  • Easy to use.


Why you need accessible powerpoint slide shows l.jpg
Why you need accessible PowerPoint slide shows

  • A risk mitigation strategy - the more accessible a presentation is the less you open yourself to legal action

  • It is stipulated in the Monash style guide.

  • In line with Monash cultural values – diversity, equality . . .


Options for creating accessible powerpoint l.jpg
Options for creating accessible PowerPoint

  • Use accessible PowerPoint techniques

  • HTML version of presentation

    • HTML is the only format reliably accessible to the various brands of screen readers on the market.

  • Best option: provide both!


Accessible powerpoint techniques l.jpg
Accessible PowerPoint techniques

  • A quick demonstration…

  • Oh dear… look in the outline view

  • Remember: text in text boxes is not accessible

Very important information! – Please use the attendance book and fill out the feedback form.

BUT - This text is in a textbox – not accessible


Points to remember l.jpg
Points to remember…

  • Avoid adding text-boxes

    • Ensure that all the text is visible in the “Outline” view. If not – its not accessible.

    • If text box unavoidable, add hidden slide containing the text-box text (Slide Show -> Hide Slide).

  • Use Microsoft default slide layouts

    • View them under Format > slide layout

  • Graphics are not included in outline.

    • If graphics are important, again need to describe them in hidden slide or alternate-text. (we’ll come back to alt-text later)

  • To avoid confusion - keep outline order logical


Creating an html version use the wizard l.jpg
Creating an HTML version – use the Wizard

  • Don’t use “Save to HTML” – use the Accessible Web Publishing Wizard for Microsoft ® Office

    • www.rehab.uiuc.edu/office/ *Please see final slide*

  • Download issues:

    • Requires Microsoft dot.net framework

    • Can download this framework at same time

Wizard process - notes

  • Consider your text sizes in the slides
