So much text that you
might as well read a book! You see slides with so much text on them that it seems as though the presenter needs all their content on the slide so in case they forget what it is that they’re saying, they can turn around and read the slide to the audience, just in case the audience can’t read it themselves. But by this stage the audience has already ﬁnished reading and wonders why you’re reading the information as well, because they can read, didn’t you realise that? (oh, and the slide is numbered, possibly dated with a title at the bottom and some meaningless code, just to make sure there 5 is no extra space left at all) (better ﬁll this bit!)

And there’ll be bullet points
too! (lot’s of them) ๏People say, use only six bullets ๏With only six words per bullet ๏Print out the slides as well ๏Add animated text just for fun ๏Use fonts that are too small ๏And read them out as well!
