During the pandemic, those of us in the ATE community find ourselves needing to give a lot of these presentations online, which adds its own set of technical challenges on top of those we already face when we present. Regardless of the content or platform, it’s important that our efforts be made accessible, in order to reach as many people as possible. This helpful tip sheet from the National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) and AccessATE offers guidance on creating accessible presentations.
This tip sheet covers accessibility in the process of crafting presentations, as well as delivering talks and best practices for accessibility following the event. To find additional resources that will help your team ensure accessibility, read the AccessATE blog post on Creating Accessible Presentations.
AccessATE supports the work of the NSF-funded Advanced Technological Education (ATE) projects and centers in making the materials and activities they develop more accessible for all students and faculty, including those with disabilities. The project aims to increase awareness and understanding of accessibility requirements and provide guidance, tools, and support that offers solutions and helps achieve compliance with accessibility standards.
