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.

New information and communications technologies can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, but only if such technologies are designed from the beginning so that everyone can use them. Given the explosive growth in the use of the World Wide Web for publishing, electronic commerce, lifelong learning and the delivery of government services, it is vital that the Web be accessible to everyone.
