How to Make Presentations Accessible

Accessibility Practices

Use the following accessibility practices to make PowerPoint presentations accessible and improve usability for everyone.

  • Write in plain language, avoiding jargon.
  • Use a unique title on each slide.
  • Use sans serif fonts (such as Arial or Helvetica).
  • Use a font size of about 24 points or larger.
  • Be concise. It’s preferable for your presentation to have more slides with fewer words per slide.
  • Use bullets and ordered lists.
