Good advice for presenters to think about when creating an accessible presentation. Would be beneficial to include more information on what an accessible presentation might look like.

This website provides good information that can help us to enhance the accessibility of our presentations not necessarily for people with disabilities but for all audiences. I learnt a lot from "How to make your presentation accessible to all" section.

It took me several years of struggling with the heavy door to my building, sometimes having to wait until a person stronger came along, to realize that the door was an accessibility problem, not only for me, but for others as well. And I did not notice, until one of my students pointed it out, that the lack of signs that could be read from a distance at my university forced people with mobility impairments to expend a lot of energy unnecessarily, searching for rooms and offices. Although I have encountered this difficulty myself on days when walking was exhausting to me, I interpreted it, automatically, as a problem arising from my illness (as I did with the door), rather than as a problem arising from the built environment having been created for too narrow a range of people and situations.
