    Event Date:

    Abstract - In the process of focusing on how to design PowerPoint presentations that are accessible to people with visual impairment, color blindness, or no usable screen vision, this seminar will demonstrate tools and techniques that also can boost your general presentation design skills that will be appreciated by any audience. In addition, it will address issues in data presentation including how to create graphs from within PowerPoint, how to animate them, and options for making them more readable by people with low vision. Because the content is so comprehensive, this seminar will span more than one Brown Bag session. https://www.ski.org/users/deborah-gilden
