Tips for designing a ppt slide presentation
When presenting a slide show on a computer, you can use special visual effects, sound and animation. Do not abuse these effects in your presentation. The effects used, such as animations and transitions, must highlight your connection, and not monopolize the attention of the audience. Computer presentations can be displayed in several ways. For example, you can install on a terminal, present in direct assistance, or distribute or publish on the Web.

Animations and transitions :Transitions are special effects that introduce a slide in a slideshow. You can choose from many transitions and vary their speed. You can change the transition effect to show that this is a new section in a presentation or to insist on a particular slide. The animations are sound or visual effects you can add text or other objects, such as a chart or image. If the language of your audience reads left to right, design your animated slides so that your arguments appear from the left. When you want to highlight a point, do scroll from the right. This maneuver draws the attention of the audience and enhances the scope of your argument.

Music, sounds and videos : The introduction of a music or sound during a transition or animation can attract attention of assistance in the slideshow. You can also play videos with, for example, part of the advertisement or a training program of a company. However, using too many special effects, you may remove the assistance of the real content of your presentation.

Narrative voice : You can add narration to a slide show for people who can not attend a presentation, self-running slide shows, for a slide show available on the Internet or for archiving a meeting so that presenters can come back later and listen to comments made during the presentation.

Rhythm and repetition : The pace of your presentation has an impact on the behavior of the audience. Rapidly fatiguing the listeners, a slow lull them away. You can use PowerPoint features to adjust the pace of a presentation before the show. At this rehearsal, you can assess the visual impact of your slides. The abundance of words or images on a slide can cause some distraction. If you think you have used too much text, you can split a slide into two or three, then enlarge the font size.
