The 508 Compliance Resource Team Notes:

Imagine you are giving a presentation to a large group of people in an auditorium. Some of those people may have hearing loss or be completely deaf, while others may have visual impairments or be completely blind. Your presentation needs to be accessible to every one, so how can you be sure?

The following tips will give you hints about how to make a presentation 508 compliant:
  • If your presentation features a Power Point presentation, you can print handouts of your slides to pass out to the audience.
  • You may want to record a video of your presentation and embed it with closed captions and include the link on your handouts, so people could go online to view it at a later date.
  • You may also want to provide a text transcript of the audio of your presentations and include the link on your handouts, so people could go online to view it at a later date.
  • You could create a digital "presentation packet" that could be delivered by CD to your entire audience that could contain a 508 compliant version of your presentation (Power Point, Video file, Audio File, handouts, etc).
