Abstract:
This seminar will cover many fun, sometimes perplexing, features of PowerPoint. Topics include cropping videos, animating text, sharpening shapes, taming icons, punching holes in shapes (!), working with layers, and managing morphs. All of these will be demonstrated with reference to a PowerPoint presentation about what parents of children with CVI have reported regarding their children’s ability to read – research coming out of Dr. Arvind Chandna’s lab.

Improving Zoom accessibility for people with hearing impairments
People with hearing impairments often use lipreading and speechreading to improve speech comprehension. This approach is helpful but only works if the speaker’s face and mouth are clearly visible. For the benefit of people with hearing impairments on Zoom calls, please enable your device’s camera whenever you are speaking on Zoom, and face the camera while you speak. (Feel free to disable your camera when you aren’t speaking.)
