I had no idea that there was an accessibility checker!
Hi Yvonne & Kimberly - here's the link to the document we're using.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-IQrNVHNGgDr1vBvGwkqUW2P5_-QPkzLIBuhZbSwF0s/edit#heading=h.sfvtiwivmjevhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1-IQrNVHNGgDr1vBvGwkqUW2P5_-QPkzLIBuhZbSwF0s/edit#heading=h.sfvtiwivmjev
why no title?
Does the screen reader use the title as well as the description?
Should we convert our PowerPoint to PDF for our courses or does it matter?
I will defer to HSwanson, but I would not convert the PPTs.
I recommend keeping them in PPT to make it easier for you to keep them accessibile
Just to make sure: for smart art we also need to do alt text
for each box
do you have a good example of a description for , say a cartoon where students need to comment on it?
Yes to both of you.
do you write everything including the text on the image and the context
In fact, Zeynep,
you don't need to copy the text in the image unless it's critical; but the description needs to be good enough for the student to get the point of the image and be able to complete any associated activity
When using hyperlinks, is it better to have a descriptive title? I often see "go here" or "here" for a hyperlink.
You need a descriptive title - otherwise the screen reader user just hears "go here" "go here" "go here" and they have no idea where "here" is.
do you have to delete that other text box over that table?
if u leave it does the screen reader reads that there is text box with nothing in it?
what about inserting an actual video in the slide rather than linking out? - any accessibility issues there?
How do I install spanish CC?
as long as there is cc..
This was amazing...thank you!
