How do I make my presentations accessible?

Oral presentations often make use of visual aids such as PowerPoint presentations. If consideration is not given to blind and partially sighted members of the audience, a presentation can be inaccessible. 

The World Blind Union (WBU) has produced simple guidelines on how to maximise your impact by ensuring that your presentation, and your delivery technique, are as accessible as possible to all your audience members. The guidelines contain both practical information and good-practice guidance, as well as useful tips on making your PowerPoint slides more accessible. Further information can also be found on the WBU website.

For more information on creating materials that are accessible to blind and partially sighted people please contact our Helpline:
