“When you prepare for your next presentation, use these tips on how to tweak your slides and your talk so that everyone gets the most out of it.

 Create Accessible Slides

Make Your Text Big. No, Bigger.

DOES IT MAKE SENSE IN GREY-SCALE?

IT’S A SLIDE, NOT A NOVEL

ANIMATED SLIDE TRANSITIONS? REALLY?

READABILITY APPLIES TO SLIDE TEXT, TOO

GIFS AREN’T ALWAYS FUNNY

HOW GOOD IS YOUR COLOR CONTRAST?

There are recommended color contrast values for text on the web.

ENABLE YOUR AUDIENCE TO FOLLOW ALONG

KEEP YOUR LINKS SHORT

  • Readability: Long URLs will wrap onto multiple lines, which is hard to read.
  • Say-ability: You should say your URL out loud for people who can’t see the screen. A long URL is very hard to say correctly, particularly if it contains strings of random characters. It’s also very hard for listeners to understand and record in real time.
  • Use a URL shortener

DOES YOUR PRESENTATION CONTAIN MULTIMEDIA?

DON’T PUT THE PUNCHLINE AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SLIDE

2. Presenting Tips

HAVE A CLEAR BEGINNING, MIDDLE, AND END

GIVE THE AUDIENCE TIME TO READ YOUR SLIDES

PROVIDE CAPTIONS AND FOREIGN LANGUAGE TRANSLATION

MIND YOUR LANGUAGE

STORIES AREN’T UNIVERSAL

INTERESTS AND POP CULTURE REFERENCES AREN’T UNIVERSAL EITHER

SLOW DOWN, BREATHE.

RESPECT THE CODE OF CONDUCT AND YOUR AUDIENCE

MAKE YOUR CODE DEMONSTRATIONS ACCESSIBLE, TOO

DON’T DROP THE MIC

3. After The Presentation

DISTRIBUTE ACCESSIBLE SLIDES

FILL THE GAPS WITH NOTES, A TRANSCRIPT OR AN ARTICLE”
