Many people with disabilities use assistive technology to access digital content or need content in alternative formats for it to be fully accessible to them. One of the most common assistive technologies is a screen reader which reads text on the screen out loud for those with low or no vision.

In this quick video tutorial, Ally, from CeKTER, shows researchers how to make sure that their Microsoft PowerPoint presentations are accessible for people using screen readers. Ally covers some of the common features in MS PowerPoint that employment researchers and their staff can use when creating a presentation. When you make your research & product content more accessible, your work can reach more people. This will improve your dissemination efforts by increasing the number of stakeholders that can read and use your work.
