Visual Aids to Communication

Visual Aids to Communication
Visual aids significantly improve the interest of a presentation. However, they must be relevant to what you want to say. A careless design or use of a slide can simply get in the way of the presentation. What you use depends on the type of talk you are giving.

Here are some possibilities:

1) Overhead projection transparencies (OHPs)

2) 35mm slides

3) Computer projection (Powerpoint, applications such as Excel, etc)

4) Video, and film,

5) Real objects - either handled from the speaker's bench or passed around

6) Flip~chart or blackboard - possibly used as a 'scratch-pad' to expand on a point
