Accessible Presentations

It is important to consider making your event and presentation accessible because it will help you get your message to a wider audience. This is a guide that will help you do so. Adopting all these practices might seem difficult at first. Try to check off as many of the items on the checklist as possible. Including some accessibility is better than leaving it out altogether.
