Before: Getting Ready Meeting-Whiteboard

Whiteboard and Markers

Be aware of color-blind issues. Use new black markers for the safest option. It may be difficult for color-blind people to see red, green, blue, and yellow. Be aware that color-blind and low vision users have individual variations and different preferences re: colors and background. Use strong contrast to the background, so black ink on white background may be the safest option.

Whiteboard—Challenge of a professor using a whiteboard in the room

  • handwriting issues-prefer print not cursive
  • too small handwriting
  • squeezing in words at the end of the sentence
  • using dry markers, making it hard to see the writing

Slides

Use a laser or a stick pointer to help focus attention on slides

Both PowerPoint and Google slides have captioning features
