5.2. Powerpoint for presentation

If Powerpoint is being used for presentation then:

  • Make sure you use large sans-serif fonts, e.g. Arial 24 pt.
  • Keep minimal amount of text within your slides to either short sentences or bullet points. Use the 6 x 7 rule (6 lines per slide, 7 words per line) where possible.
  • Use templates/themes, these are predefined slide layouts to keep the reading order and colour contrasts correct.
  • PowerPoint templates for QMUL can be found on the Branding Webpages
Similarly to Word, PowerPoint also has it's own Accessibility Checker, and this can be found via the Review menu in the PowerPoint application or PowerPoint Online. It will guide you on fixing any accessibility issues that it detects.
