VIRTUAL Accessibility Workshop: CREATING MORE INCLUSIVE POWERPOINT SLIDES

Tuesday, January 19, 2021; 9:00-11:00 am (Arizona time)

Learn how to make your PowerPoint slides more accessible to people with disabilities in a new workshop led by accessibility experts Rob Carr, CPACC and Lyssa Prince, CPWA, from Oklahoma ABLE Tech. This is a unique 2-hour workshop:

  • The first hour will feature a recorded session discussing techniques and tools that you can use to make your slides and slide decks more accessible.
  • During the second hour, Rob and Lyssa will join live to answer questions and go through several hands-on exercises.

The workshop is designed to give you the opportunity to apply what you learned in the first hour of the workshop during the interactive, hands-on second hour. You will leave the workshop knowing how to use built-in features to create more accessible slides while simultaneously making your time in PowerPoint more efficient!

COST: $10 per participant

The workshop will be conducted using the Zoom platform. Zoom registration links will be sent after paid registration is complete.
