People with visual disabilities need alternative ways of accessing information conveyed by images and other non-textual objects. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d), as amended in 1998, is a federal law that requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities. Accordingly, 508 compliance is mandatory across all federal agencies.

This webinar will provide awareness and show you where to find help to make your Microsoft PowerPoint presentations 508 compliant. This 30-minute session will describe the best practices for using an accessible PowerPoint template.

NOTE: All training sessions are being recorded. If you are unable to attend, please visit the CIO Training website to view the recording.
