Let’s talk about hyperlinks for a moment.
When you copy a URL onto a slide, PowerPoint will automatically paste the
full URL. It is important to give hyperlinks a
meaningful name that will tell a student who is visually impaired, and who is
using a screen reader, where the link will take them. This quick demo will show you how to
change the name of the hyperlink displayed on your slide. First, place your
cursor over the hyperlink and right click. Next click edit hyperlink. A window will open up that looks like
this. In the box next to “text to display”, delete the URL and type in the text you
wish to be displayed on your slide. I’m going to change this URL to read
“Canvas Tutorial” and then click OK at the bottom right corner of the window. Note
that your link now reads canvas tutorial.
