The one thing that someone might consider is what type of san serif font that the presenter uses. Sometimes the space inbetween the letters of a word can be to close and may blurr together(example: condensed or narrow fonts). Also, if the presenter is sending out the presentation to multiple viewers than the font should be a standard san serif font instead of a personalized font.

Some of the links on this tip sheet are inactive and could be updated. This tips sheet is really simple and easy to read and allows a person to use the external links for additional information on how to increase the accessibility of their PowerPoint presentations. it even brings to light the importance of making sure nothing flashes too quickly in case someone has a seizure disorder.

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
