Easy to understand, but on the whole, this may not be as useful as some lecture halls are really big- what do you do then?

Easy to understand and making sure that the font size is big enough for individual's that sit further away in a lecture hall. Also having the font on a back ground that makes the font pop out.

Very easy to understand and definitely needed, especially when presenting strictly over computers these days.

I did have a hard time accessing the link to this PowerPoint lecture for some reason, but overall I thought the information was interesting, especially knowing about the right minimum font size for accessible media depending on how far the seatings are from the screen.

I think that this powerpoint is straightforward and useful. The first slide details the guidelines to follow and how to measure while the second slide gives actual examples of font sizes and how they look on the screen.

This powerpoint is easy to understand and follow. It is a great resource for individuals to use to make their media accessible to all individuals. This is good to follow, especially since online classes have become more popular since COVID.
