TCU Campus Store, Room 208

Outcomes 1.1, 1.2, 1.3Are your course materials or department documents accessible to all users? In this workshop, learn how to check your Microsoft Powerpoint presentations using the built-in accessibility checker, and use accessibility guidelines to build accessible presentations. Note: Users who prefer Keynote should be aware that Keynote lacks several features that enable accessible presentation authoring. We recommend exporting any Keynotes created to PowerPoint to scan for accessibility, and share your presentations from there. All TCU faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend this workshop.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Explain who is responsible for creating accessible content and why it is important to create accessible content.
  • Assess previously created presentations using the built-in accessibility checker and accessibility guidelines and resolve issues identified.
  • Apply the accessibility guidelines into new presentations you create in Microsoft PowerPoint.

We recommend all participants, prior to the workshop, contact TCU IT to upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft Office on your TCU computers. This will make sure you have access to the built in accessibility checkers you will use during and beyond the workshop.
