Preparing slide-show presentations © S.P. Platt 20044 Text style and size Use a “sans serif” font –e.g. Arial, like this Make it big enough to read –The title is 44 point – very big –This is 32 point –This is 28 point –This is 24 point – go no smaller –This is 20 point – too small really!

Preparing slide-show presentations © S.P. Platt 20049 What a horrible colour scheme! Don’t try to be clever with fonts. This is too small, and much too busy.
Preparing slide-show presentations © S.P. Platt 200410 This is something else that gets on people’s nerves So don’t do it.
Preparing slide-show presentations © S.P. Platt 200411 More bad habits Can you read this? Or this ? (That was 16 pt – this is 32 pt) I suppose there’s a temptation to put as much text on a slide as possible to try to get more information across at one go, but it’s too much and too small to read and, besides, you only end up reading the slide out verbatim during the presentation which is hardly worth doing, you might as well give copies of the slides out to the audience and let them read it themselves while you stand there with nothing to do, because they’ll be too busy reading to listen to what you have to say and that’s not really what it’s all about now, is it?
Preparing slide-show presentations © S.P. Platt 200412 Keep it simple! I shan’t say “stupid” - yet.
