Activities

2015

Project contributor Whitney Quesenbury published an article Make Your Presentations Accessible: Seven Easy Steps. Alongside the article, we are currently developing a tool that will allow people to easily check their Powerpoint presentations for accessibility - and make corrections. 

There are no immediate plans for a workshop, but if you're interested in creating one (virtual or in person) or know of one that we should attend then please contact Caroline Jarrett.
