Presentation Accessibility Requirements
Once your training is approved, the tele-education team will request your PowerPoint presentation slide deck and any additional documents (handouts) you want to share with the audience. All presentation slides and documents must meet 508 compliance standards.
Section 508 is part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The 508 standards and guidelines ensure that information and communications covered by Section 508 are accessible to individuals with disabilities.
For any graphs, tables, or modules, images, please send in a Word document or put a short description of what these are in the PowerPoint notes section. If it has data, please include the numbers of the data. For information about providing alt text in PowerPoint and PDF, please see our 508 Compliance and Alt Text guide [PDF - 2.3 MB].
For additional information, please see Making Accessible PDFs from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
