What We Don't Like

Microsoft has free templates available for all its products, including PowerPoint. Many of these templates are accessible, so they have high contrast, include alt text for images, use larger fonts, and work with a screen reader.

You can filter the results by category, such as newsletters or cards, and by event/milestone—there are templates for birthdays, weddings, back to school, Spring, holidays, congratulations, and more. However, if you do that, you might end up with templates for other Office products like Word; just look for whatever says PowerPoint under the thumbnail.

All download pages have a large screenshot of the PowerPoint template to help you make a decision on which ones to download. These files are downloaded in the POTX format, and some can even be edited directly in your browser with the free, online version of PowerPoint.
