  • 4. Font Size
    • Make sure your font is large enough to read from all areas of the room.
    • Keep text to a minimum --Say it short and sweet.
  • 5. Slides
    • Keep slides attractive and professional looking. Distracting slides could take away from the content.
    • Examples of things to avoid:
    • too many transitions & animations
    • too many sound effects
    • too much clutter per slide
  • 6. Preview Text Animations
    • Don’t use animations on text that enter “from the left.” It forces viewers to read the end of sentences first.
    • Keep it simple
        • “ stretch across” or “appear” rather than “crawl” or “swivel.”
        • Avoid loud and unpleasant sound effects that are distracting.
  • 7.
    • When making a professional presentation, avoid using “by letter” on long sentences like this one, especially with loud sounds.
    Preview Text Animations
  • 8. Animation Effectiveness
    • Less is more . .
      • Use visual effects in small doses—if you emphasize everything, you emphasize nothing.
    • Consistency is crucial for more formal presentations. Stick with a familiar pattern so as not to jar your audience.
    • Consider your audience and the tone you want to convey. Save the wackier animation and sound effects for lighter presentations.
    • Experiment with the various effects until you understand what each one does, then use them selectively.
  • 9. Remember…
    • Make presentations pleasing and interesting without over using transitions, sound, and animations.
    • Preview your presentation on the presentation equipment you plan to use.
    • Think of your audience…
        • Is your presentation one you would like to sit through?
  • 10. Good luck! Enjoy using PowerPoint!
