I was an early adopter of GIFs in articles and PPTs, but after learning about the potential harm they can cause for some people with disabilities (especially when they randomly stumble on them), I stopped. There are some considerations you can make to make them more accessible, though. I wanted to be sure to share a resource for making animated images accessible.<https://www.bbc.co.uk/gel/guidelines/how-to-make-accessible-animated-images>

Here's some more info I gathered about making powerpoints/presentations<https://brycekozlablog.blogspot.com/2018/01/accessibility-and-conference.html> more accessible, including a website that can help make your color choices more accessible.
