Accessibility Issues

I am in the process of completing the ‘poster’ we are producing for our OU course but I seem to be spending a lot of time making the 2 minute powerpoint accessible:

  • despite my best efforts I have failed to add any Alt text to the images
  • I can’t remember what is considered best practice as regards fonts for accessibility
  • I have added a transcript of my narration simply by using a text box at the bottom of each slide. Is there a better way of doing this?
  • I have used Arial Unicode as my font as I remember reading once that it is best for students with dyslexia

I think I need to do this more often to learn the ropes. At present it is disproportionately time-consuming.
