  20. Research results In subjective tests measuring how people judge the screen readability of different typefaces (from 0 to 5), most people prefer Verdana. (Hoffman, 2004)

  21. Screen v. print font • Verdana, Trebuchet, Georgia, Geneva, and New York are all examples of screen display fonts, fonts specifically designed to look good on a computer screen. • Times New Roman, Arial, and Helvetica are actually print display fonts, fonts specifically designed to look good on paper. • People strongly and consistently judge screen display fonts to be easier to read than print display fonts. (Hoffman)

  22. Serif v. sans-serif • On paper, people prefer reading serif fonts—fonts with a “tail” (like Times New Roman.) • On screens, however, prefer sans-serif fonts—fonts without a tail (like Verdana). • So, use serif fonts (like Times New Roman) for your handouts and a sans-serif font (like Verdana or Arial) for your on-screen presentation.

  23. Design Tips Typography and fonts • no more than three fonts per presentation - One for your Title and Headers- One for your content- One for an accent: “New”, “Know”, “Activity”, etc. - use the variations of a single font: example: Arial - Bold, Italic, Bold Italic -variationsonly count as one single font

  24. Design Tips use of text on slide • keep to maximum of five to seven lines of informational text • use minimal of 24 points for content information 28 points is better • be consistent with the choice of font and font size for:Headers Information text- bullet points
