I use the Illois Accesible Web Publishing Wizard for making powerpoint
presentations accesible. It is a wonderful wizard. I found it is best
to have text alternatives in a single file labeled by slide for the long
description name so I can cut and paste. Other wise you need to type in
the long description and there isn't a spell check.

Subject: [WebAIM] Powerpoints

I've been asked to put up links to some Powerpoint training
presentations (primarily for library staff but the links will probably
have to be on a public page rather than a restricted access page).

What do I need to consider about Powerpoints and accessibility (not that

I have much power to change anything but I can always try)?
