Here are a few resources and guidelines you may find helpful:

Of course, the question of font characteristics which impact accessibility is complicated by the fact that different disability populations have different needs. The same font that works well for a given low-vision user may not be a good match for someone with dyslexia, or even another low-vision user with different needs for that matter. That is why many web sites and eBook readers allow the user to change a number of font characteristics.

Hi all and Happy Friday, September 18, 2020!

Does anyone have any research, articles you would mind sharing about what font(s) is the most accessible to use with Power Point presentations?
