Welcome to the PowerPoint inclusive learning video series. Alt-text and note pane. When working with charts graphs and pictures in PowerPoint. Make sure your images and graphics are accessible to those with a vision or reading disabilities. To make visual elements more accessible, use high contrast colours like black or dark blue on a white background, or white on a dark grey background. Add alt-text with a useful description for your charts, graphs or pictures. Use specific details that will help someone who relies on a screen reader to go through the slides. Good alt-text should say what the image is about and summarizes its main points. A screen reader will also read the contents of the note pane, so that is another good place to add additional information about the slide. If you have a picture or clip-art with text on the image make sure you add the text in the image description. But for graphics that are utilised for a purely decorative purpose, it is always good to just mark those images as decorative. Finally if your layering multiple images and elements on a slide, group them together into a single image and add your alt-text to the grouped image. This will help people who use screen readers make sense of these images.
