For Review: How to Make Presentations Accessible to All


I've made the changes based on last week's telecon and input in the wiki. The latest draft revision is at:

Changes include:
- Edited Basics section, incorporating material from "Being Open to Accessibility Issues" and "Known and Unknown Audiences" sections.
- Added at the end of the Planning the Event section: Give speakers accessibility requirements and guidance.
Tell speakers that you expect their material and presentations to be accessible to people with disabilities. Consider including accessibility requirements in any contracts. Consider pointing speakers to this page ( for guidance, including the link in any speaker guidelines, e-mails, web pages, etc.
- Added: (for organizers & speakers) notes with each <h2>

Additional changes are listed at:

*Question for EOWG* is under "End of Basics section" at
*Please comment on this question.* (EOWG participants can do so directly in the wiki. List watchers can reply to this e-mail.)

Please review this page and submit any comments -- ideally *by Thur 19 Jan*, or by Wed 25 Jan at the latest.
