1 Visual aids

2 Visual aids Why do we use visual aids? increase understanding save time help people to remember get attention help the presenter

3 Visual aids Selecting the right visual aid what information? audience size available equipment time & money available to prepare

4 Visual aids Don t overuse them Only use to enforce a main point to help explain or remember a point save time

5 Visual aids What is the number one visual aid?

6 Visual aids Why is the number one visual aid?

7 Visual aids Other visual aids? props handouts white board powerpoint

8 Props What are props? any object that contributes to your speech

9 Props Why do we use props? more concrete than words create interest & be memorable strengthen your points humor help you to remember the speech

10 Props Tips for using props: make sure you feel comfortable using the prop be sure it is appropriate to the audience and the speech if it has moving parts, make certain they work make sure it is large enough for the to audience see it

11 Props Tips for using props: keep the props hidden until you need to use them they could take over the speech once used, put them away. If not, they distract the audience. don t over-use them practice using the prop

12 Props With your partner, pick a topic and think of a prop that you might use. Le a d e rship Travel Dieting Food Health Safety Ro mance Study Shopp ing Ta iwa n Sleep W ood

13 Whiteboard Whiteboard often available simple & effective suitable for a small audience allow you to record audience interaction convey information

14 Whiteboard Tips for using a whiteboard use color, write large use simple pictures, e.g. stick figures practice drawing when you finish using the board, remember to put the pen down

15 Powerpoint Use a template use a set font and color scheme. different styles are confusing for the audience. you want the audience to focus on what you present, not the way you present.

16 Powerpoint Fonts choose a clean font that is easy to read roman and Gothic typefaces are easier to read than Script or Old English stick with one or two types of fonts bulleted items should be no smaller than 22 points the title should be no smaller than 28 points

17 Powerpoint Bullets keep each bullet to one line, two at the most limit the number of bullets in a screen to six, four if there is a large title, logo, picture, etc This is known as cueing You want to cue the audience in on what you are going to say. Cues can be thought of as a brief preview. This gives the audience a framework to build upon.

18 Powerpoint Bullets (cont.) if you crowd too much text, the audience will not read it too much text makes it look busy and is hard to read why should they spend the energy reading it, when you are going to tell them what it says? our reading speed does not match our listening speed; hence, they confuse instead of reinforcing each other (and this is even more true in a second language)

19 Powerpoint Capitals and Italics Do not use all capital letters makes text hard to read conceals acronyms denies their use for EMPHASIS Italics used for quotes used to highlight thoughts or ideas used for book, journal, or magazine titles

20 Powerpoint Colors reds and oranges are high-energy but can be difficult to stay focused on greens, blues, and browns are mellower, but not as attention grabbing white on dark background should not be used if the audience is more than 20 feet away

21 The Color Wheel colors separated by another color are contrasting colors (also known as complementary) adjacent colors (next to each other) harmonize with one another. e.g. Green and Yellow the color wheel here is simplified for easy use

22 Clashing Colors colors that are directly opposite from one another are said to clash these provide readability - e.g. yellow on blue

23 Powerpoint Attention Grabber to make a slide stand out, change the font or background

24 Powerpoint Graphics use only when needed, otherwise they become distracters instead of communicators they should relate to the message and help make a point ask yourself if it makes the message clearer simple diagrams are great communicators

25 Powerpoint YOU are the number one visual aid do not hide behind powerpoint powerpoint should add to your speech, not be your speech if all you are going to do is read from the powerpoints, then stay home and the audience the slides remember, only you can prevent death by powerpoint!

26 How to use visual aids Make sure every one can see them Use different types Have them ready

27 How to use visual aids Display the visual before you use it Keep eye contact with the audience Show it for long enough Have a back up plan

28 Discussion Questions When would the whiteboard be best for a public speech? What kind of visual aid is appropriate for a small, medium sized or large audience What is the best visual aid you have seen so far in this course? How do you feel about using different kinds of visual aid? Should every speech use visual aids?

29 Vocabulary bullets concrete color wheel fonts italics props stick figures template visual aids
