When you prepare for your next workshop or presentation, use these tips on how to tweak your slides so that everyone gets the most out of it, especially for individuals who are visually impaired.
Is your slide font readable? The World Blind Union (WBU) highly suggests using sans serif font types such as Helvetica, Arial, and Verdana. Unlike serif typefaces, these font styles do not have small finishing strokes, which makes them more legible and readable for people with low vision and dyslexia. A 32-point size font is the ideal text size to use in most room settings. This is so that near-sighted people can understand what you are pointing to, even from a distance.
