The Accessible Web Publishing Wizard Version 1.0 is available for Microsoft 
Power Point.  It allows authors to create highly accessible HTML versions 
of Power Point Presentations with little or no knowledge of accessibility 
or HTML coding techniques.  The tool makes it easy to not only conform to 
Section 508 requirements[1], but also to conform at the Double-AA level to 
the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines[2].  I encourage anyone who 
uses Power Point to create presentations to try this tool to make them 
accessible to people with disabilities.

The free download is available from:

Please feel free to share this URL with other lists or people you feel 
could benefit from this tool.


Note: Major support for this project was provided by the National Institute 
on Disability Rehabilitation Research grants (H133G030079 and H133E980008) 
and the Illinois Board of Higher Education
