Poster Template Information and Download for 2022 RNATx

SHARING YOUR POSTER DIGITALLY

To ensure that all visitors to our showcase are able to access the information in the same way, please read the information below carefully. We also highly encourage you to use one of the two poster templates found below. 

Describe Images, Charts, and Graphs

Not all users can perceive images in the same way. Adding a short alternative text description allows all users to interpret the meaning of your images. For directions on adding alternative text in PowerPoint, see Add alternative text to a shape, picture, chart, SmartArt graphic, or other objects.

Use Accessible Colors

Having accessible colors on your poster ensures everyone can read your content easily. Use colors that have enough contrast between the background and foreground. You can check if your colors have enough contrast with a Contrast Checker like the one available from WebAIM or use one of the pre-designed templates available above.

Check Accessibility

Before saving your final draft, use the “Check Accessibility” feature in PowerPoint. Select FileCheck for IssuesCheck Accessibility and follow the recommendations in the report. Most likely this will include adding alt text to any images you may have missed.

Save your poster as a PowerPoint and PDF File

Save your final poster version as both a PowerPoint and PDF file. This way, users can choose which option works best for them.
