DescriptionStandard Style Title Notes: Keep main titles to one line Use subtitle to explain the title’s major point Use title case. Title case is the first letter of each word capitalized. Use it when more than 2 words are in the title. Two word titles can use all capital letters Standard: None Cautions: Font: Be aware that if you will be using a computer other than your own to present the slide show that you choose a font that is fairly universal to avoid display issues the day of your presentation. Size: make titles 36 to 48 points in size Text Notes: Make bullet points wrap no more than two lines. You may have to cut some words! Use phrases, not sentences. No more than eight lines per slide Remember: The slide is a guide, not the training material. Standard: None Cautions: Font: Be aware that if you will be using a computer other than your own to present the slide show that you choose a font that is fairly universal to avoid display issues the day of your presentation. Size: Usually the font sizes decrease with each level as you indent in your outline. The fonts should be larger at level 1 and smaller at level 3.

DescriptionStandard Style Footer Identifying information (Partner Training Section) is placed in here to display on each individual slide. Logos may also be placed here as appropriate. Font: Arial, Size: 12 point Other: Left justified. Place “DCF/DFES/BWF/ Partner Training Section” text ¾ of an inch in from the left margin. This allows the help icon to appear during the slide show without obscuring the text. Number Displays slide number on each individual slide. Font: Arial, Size: 12 point Other: centered Date Displays last revision date on each individual slide. Font: Arial, Size: 12 point Other: Right justified. Do not use auto dating feature. Master Slide Standards and Cautions Note:The footer information, slide number and date are already formatted for you if you use the Partner Training Section PowerPoint Template to create your PowerPoint. The style information on this page is included if you want to create the footer yourself. 07/05/13DCF/DFES/BWF/Partner Training Section4
NewWorkeFooterExample/Xxxx/xxx_xx_TN_ The Footer Box The box that contains the footer information should be.25 inches tall and 10 inches wide. The color can be modified so that it coordinates with the overall color scheme of your PowerPoint. New Worker Materials will need to include the directory path name just like all other NW materials. To accommodate the path name in the box, make the box.4 inches tall rather than.25 inches. Type the directory path name in Arial, 10 point font with no bolding. A template for New Worker materials is available for you to use. 07/05/13DCF/DFES/BWF/Partner Training Section5 507/05/13
Background Color The template has a white background with an orange box in the footer. Feel free to choose the colors that best suit the presentation. Both the background color and footer box color can be modified. As a guideline, pick a background color and use no more than three additional colors of text for maximum impact. Consider both color and texture for backgrounds. Sometimes a neutral background with a simple texture will work better than a solid color. When using multiple background colors, be sure to use complimentary colors; the colors will blend together without detracting from the foreground text. 07/05/13DCF/DFES/BWF/Partner Training Section6
09/07/20117 Example 1 The need to make to policies, practices and procedures when necessary to ensure equal opportunity for people with disabilities. Reasonable modifications Note how the yellow & blue backgrounds compliment each other. The shading and rounding of the yellow background also gives the presentation dimension. The contrasting orange text color is used here to draw focus and emphasis.
FooterDate Example 2 Bullet 1 Bullet 2 Bullet 3 Bullet 4 Analogous, or like colors, in the backgrounds make everything blend together nicely.
DCF/DFES/BWF/Partner Training Section9May 15, 2012 Example 3 This presentation has essentially a white background. However, it uses a nice blend of shading and blue footer boxes for a 3-D effect.
10 Example 4 DateFooter This example also uses a white background, but adds color and dimension with the use of the static title bar image.
Color and Accessibility According to various sources, 5 percent to 8 percent of men have some form of color blindness, red-green being the most common. For this reason, it's a good idea to limit the use of red and green to high contrast color combinations. Avoid combinations of red/green and red/blue. Avoid relying exclusively on color to present information; everyone, including blind and visually impaired individuals, should get all of the information from your presentation. Keep the number of total colors in the presentation to no more than 4 or 5. As a general rule, lighter backgrounds with darker text and foreground colors are easier to read from a distance. 07/05/13DCF/DFES/BWF/Partner Training Section11
