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.

It took me several years of struggling with the heavy door to my building, sometimes having to wait until a person stronger came along, to realize that the door was an accessibility problem, not only for me, but for others as well. And I did not notice, until one of my students pointed it out, that the lack of signs that could be read from a distance at my university forced people with mobility impairments to expend a lot of energy unnecessarily, searching for rooms and offices. Although I have encountered this difficulty myself on days when walking was exhausting to me, I interpreted it, automatically, as a problem arising from my illness (as I did with the door), rather than as a problem arising from the built environment having been created for too narrow a range of people and situations.
