MS Powerpoint Hyperlinks


Creating proper hyperlinks in your PowerPoint slides is important in providing screen readers a context for the link. In this first incorrect example, “to read more about the Community College of Aurora Click Here”. The Click here link is vague and a learner wouldn’t necessarily know where they are visiting, should they click on it. In the next example, we have a link that is spelled out as the entire U.R.L. address. This is another bad example because a screen reader would read out every character in that link. In this next slide we will look at how to properly create a hyperlink. First highlight the text used to provide context to the link. In this case the Community College of Aurora. Then select the Insert menu, and click on hyperlink. In the address area, put in the URL of your link. Then press OK. We now have a properly formatted hyperlink that will be easily identifiable by a screen reader.
