Changing the format of this to provide the information which would have been spoken is really needed. There is limited use of this presentation in its current form.

It would be helpful if this were a voiceover powerpoint, as some of the slides are more brief and could use additional elaboration. However, the information overall is helpful.

The information is useful and handy. However, all slides are not clear as to what the information on the slides mean. As for an accessibility resource, it is not really good for overall accessibility to users trying to access it. Also, the black background with white text over it isn't easy on the eyes and may be hard to view for some users.

This information is an interesting and engaging way to express advancements of UD overtime. It relates well to both evaluation and implementation of UD principles throughout a variety of spaces and tools. However, there was pictorial information and incomplete thoughts without much context that (I assume) would have been provided verbally during a presentation. Additionally, the commentary left in the notes section is not readily noticeable. Therefore, additional formatting options need to be provided to relay such information to individuals viewing the PowerPoint to ensure this resource’s accessibility and completeness, especially in regard to the UD principle of perceivability which is ironically discussed throughout the presentation.

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
