  10. 10. Text/Fonts When you are planning to use a multimedia presentation, learning to effectively work with the delivery presentation technology is a key to your success. While your audience may not consciously notice the difference, design decisions you make will have an effect on how your presentation is perceived and how well they remember the information you communicated.  KISS – Keep it simply stated. Use no more than about 6 lines of type/6 words per line.  Avoid wording overload. Cover only one topic or show only one idea per slide.  Replace complete sentences with bullet points. Use only key words, not full sentences. © 2005 National Safety Council Safety Communication & Training Techniques 10
