To change the text of a hyperlink, do the following:

hyperlink dialog box.
2. In the Text to display box, make any necessary changes to the text.
3. Click OK.

1. Place your cursor in the hyperlink you want to add ScreenTip text to.
2. On the Insert tab, in the Links group, click Hyperlink to open the hyperlink dialog box.
3. Click ScreenTip…
4. Type in your text in the ScreenTip text box.
5. Click OK.
Include closed captions for any audio or video:
1. Whenever you use additional audio or video components in a presentation, ensure that
the content is available in alternative formats for users with disabilities, such as closed
captions, transcripts or alt text.
2. If you’re using PowerPoint 2010, you can download and install the Sub-titling text add-in
for Microsoft PowerPoint (STAMP): http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/powerpoint-
help/redir/HA102540315.aspx?CTT=5&origin=HA102013555, which lets you easily
create closed captions for video and audio in your presentations.
Ensure that the reading order of each slide is logical
People who cannot view the slide will hear slide text, shapes and content read back in a specific
order. If you are using objects that are not part of the slide template, it is important to be sure that
they will be read by a screen reader in the order that you intend them to be.
To check the order in which your slide content will be read back, do the following:
1. On the Home tab, in the Drawing group, click Arrange and then choose Selection
2. The Selection Pane lists the objects on the slide. Objects will be read back beginning
with the bottom list item and ending with the top list item. Correct any out of order items
using the Re-order arrows on the bottom of the pane.
Increase visibility for colorblind viewers
Colorblindness affects a significant number of people, most often as an inability to distinguish
between red and green, or seeing red and green differently. When creating presentations, it’s
important to choose elements that increase visual contrast so viewers who cannot rely on color
distinction can still understand what they’re seeing. Some things you can do when building a
slide deck include:
Avoid using orange, red, and green in your template and text.
Use texture in graphs, instead of color, to highlight points of interest.
Circle or use animation to highlight information, rather than relying on laser pointers or
Keep the overall contrast in your presentation high.
Animations and Transitions
Avoid animation and automatic slide transitions since they:
Can be distracting.
Can cause screen readers to re-read slides.
Can read parts of the slide out of order, and/or.
May not give users enough time to read slide content.
Accept or reject and turn off track changes.
Remove all comments from the document.
All slides should be absent of flickering/flashing text and/or animated text.
Convert PowerPoint to Other Formats
PowerPoint is a good format for live presentations, but it is not the best format for distributing
content on the web. PowerPoint files can be large, and users must either have Microsoft Office
or a special plug-in in order to view them. The slides by themselves usually do not offer a
complete summary of the information conveyed. If PowerPoint files are distributed or posted on
the web it is recommended that they are exported to PDF.
Converting your presentations to a PDF
To save the accessible functionality of the PowerPoint document that has been created, it must
be saved as a PDF.
Preferably you have Adobe Acrobat X or XI Pro software installed to continue on with making
your PDF file.
Now that the document has a structure, alternative text for images, formatted columns, and
correctly styled tables, it is ready to be converted to the PDF file format. These general steps will
help get your document to an accessible PDF.
Turn Track Changes Off: Check to see if Track Changes is on or off. Track Changes is a
toggle. If Track Changes is on click the Track Changes Icon under the Review tab.
Remove All Comments: Note: Always perform this step. Comments may be hidden.
To remove comments Click on the Reject Change/Delete Show Markup under the
Review tab and make sure Comments in unchecked
All Formatting Marks Turned Off: All formatting marks must be turned off.
Click on Tools; Then Options to display the Option Menus. Formatting marks may be
found under the View tab. Ensure that all formatting marks are turned off.
Convert your document to a PDF file:
1. With the document open and from the Word toolbar or ribbon, select Adobe PDF or
2. Click the Create PDF Icon.
3. You have now created a PDF file.
4. You will now be working in your opened PDF file. Follow the directions below.
