  17. Type and layout Text … what not to do …

  18. Over-bearing and confusing • Too many bullets and too much text too tightly packed together with too little white space, all of which is hard to read and forces the audience to concentrate on the slides more than on what you are saying. (And remember the slide from we saw at the start of this show.) • Or inconsistencies in font size and type for no particular reason • Colour reduces reading comprehension dramatically, as does a coloured background and • As does sans-serif font for text other than short headings, which is why newspapers never use it except for headlines
