Most important: keep them:
clean, simple, necessary to the story line.
Viewgraph number vs. content amount
On the one hand:
Each Transparency should illustrate a single point.
Simple viewgraph better communicates information.
Complex data/figures confuse audience unless
speaker separates them into a series of simplified units.
On the other hand:
Flipping through many viewgraphs fragments the talk.
Organizing coherent story on one viewgraph
gives audience sufficient in-one-place info to absorb it.
Putting related figures/data on one viewgraphs allows
relationships to be displayed and explained.
Agreement exists on:
Avoid showing tables. If do, keep least significant digits.
Equations induce audience "tune out." If must use:
Introduce physics of the symbols first.
Never change a symbol in or between viewgraphs.
Lettering on viewgraphs: 18 point minimum.
Uniform style accents flow and coherence of the talk.
Clearly label axes (horizontally) with at least 18pt type.
Delete all information from figure irrelevant to talk.
Explain main points of figure on its viewgraph.
