Text size • Certain things
can be very difficult to read • Especially when in a large room with small screen • Text and background colour are important • Too many points on a slide are a challenge • What you put on a slide does not need to be read from the podium (unless it’s a really important quote) • Your viewers eyes will start to glaze over if they see too many of these slides • You think your research is important and you want to make sure that you don’t forget any vital elements. Putting them all up on a slide, however, is not the way to do it • Yellow is tough to read
