Accessibility Note

This presentation uses an out-of-the box HTML slideshow script which by itself is unaccessible. Keybindings exist to traverse forward and backward with arrow keys, but focus never shifts as the slides advance. The slides themselves are well structured, so you can use a read all command to listen to everything linearly. I've also added a live region which should work well for screen readers that support live regions. As you traverse through the slides using arrow keys, the slide's content will be added to the live region. If all else fails, you can also access the slideshow content by turning off CSS and JavaScript.
