Accessible PowerPoint

The ASAE Access team in conjunction with the ASAE Learning team has created the following guidelines for creating accessible PowerPoint.

  • Use the Accessible PowerPoint Template developed by the ASAE Access Team in conjunction with the ASAE Learning Team
  • Describe the content of graphic slides orally during their presentation
  • Have sufficient text descriptions of graphs and tables for presentations posted online or sent digitally
  • If using video, make sure the video is captioned
  • Use the PowerPoint default font of 44-point bold font for headings
  • Use 32-point font or higher for bullets
  • Include no more than 6 lines of text on each slide

Reaching Participants with Vision Impairments:

  • Describe slides briefly. Example: "This slide covers these three key points…", "This graph illustrates these key points."
  • Avoid pointing to something on the slide and using words like "this, that, these, and those," unless you indicate what "this" means. Example: "This map shows…" (not "This shows…"). People who can't see you pointing to a slide don't know what "this" used alone means.
Closed Captioning

Content shown in the TEC Virtual theater will have closed captioning available for all sessions.
