PowerPoint and Google Slides

Best Practices

  • The accessibility principles of Microsoft Word also apply to Microsoft PowerPoint.
  • Avoid animations and transitions.
  • Use built-in slide layouts.
  • Make sure slide content will be read in a logical order.  The assistive technology will read the elements on your slide from the first object placed on the slide to the last.
