Evett and Brown (2005) produced a set of guidelines for producing text which promotes Universal Accessibility. They are consistent with both the aims and the recommendations of the WCAG. The guidelines have been applied to Powerpoint presentations (Evett et al, 2006), and a recent case study has extended their coverage of potential Powerpoint content. The talk describes the case study and the refined guidelines produced. Content accessibility is discussed.
