Yes. You do so by beginning with an accessible Microsoft PowerPoint presentation. When you publish your presentation, accessibility is enabled by default. As long as the PowerPoint presentation itself is accessible, there are no extra steps required to enable the accessibility of your Adobe Presenter 9 presentation. See Build an Accessible Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation for information on adding accessibility to PowerPoint presentations.
Yes. Adobe Presenter 9 leverages the accessibility of the Macromedia Flash Player. With integrated support for Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA), the Macromedia Flash Player makes content available via screen access technologies such as Window-Eyes from GW Micro, Home Page Reader from IBM and JAWS from Freedom Scientific. This ensures that text, text equivalents specified in PowerPoint and accessible objects embedded within an Adobe Presenter presentation are exposed to assistive technologies.
Yes. Adobe Presenter 9 presentations include a number of keystrokes to help navigate the presentation. These keys allow all users the ability to control the presentation without relying on the use of the mouse.
If you are using JAWS for Windows, you should turn off the Quick Keys mode by pressing Ins + N in order to use the Adobe Presenter 9 solutions keyboard shortcuts.
