New CODE Resource: Creating and Delivering Accessible Presentations 

Creating and delivering an effective presentation for your event, pitch or all-staff meeting is critical to connecting with your audience.

But for your presentation to be effective for your entire audience – including people with disabilities – you need to make sure your content is designed with accessibility in mind.

This guide serves as a valuable resource for training content developers and presenters in your organization on how to create and present accessible content.

Created by Incluzia, this resource includes information to help your organization create presentations that (1) meet Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA) compliance requirements for the Information and Communications Standard and (2) follow best practices and guidelines using accessible print materials, incorporating common audio and video technology and assistive technology.
