Accessibility for Presentation Design is a Requisite

It is important that content is accessible for everyone. Tools providing accessibility for presentation design are becoming more and more intelligent and inclusive. From the Accessibility Checker to live subtitling and screen readers in PowerPoint, we design with these tools in mind. Your content reaches as many people as possible. Please honor your entire audience. Practice accessibility for presentation design. Learn about best practices for live and virtual events and meetings in the helpful resources below.

“There’s a beauty in recognizing exclusion. It calls on our humanity and our powers of empathy. And when we answer that call, beautiful things happen for our products, our customers, and us.“


Color Sensibilities in Accessible Design

Industry standard color contrast ratios range between 3:1 and 4.5:1. Through testing and building presentations that conform to these standards, colors won’t blend together when seen in grey scale. We ensure appropriate visual contrast for people that process color differently.

Communicating Presentation Text

Screen readers are used for those who cannot read the on-screen text. We test to ensure the layer order is correct and content is being read in the intended sequence. People with visual challenges can follow and note the key points of your narrative.

Image Translation for Presentation Visuals

If the visuals cannot be seen, an opportunity to convey important information has been lost. Alternative text is added to images that provide descriptions that are read to the attendee. We ensure the screen reader correctly describes the imagery for people who are not able to view the presentation.

Accessibility through Closed Captioning

Sometimes its just too loud to hear a speaker. Individuals may have an auditory impairment. The audience needs to have the alternative to read the spoken communication. We can help in captioning for live events and in offline videos.
