  • Use upper and lower case
  • Avoid abbreviations
backgrounds
Backgrounds

Light fonts on dark backgrounds are best suited for PowerPoint presentations for video application.

The previous solid blue background is good, or this ramped black-to-blue background is suitable.

Don’t use red as a font color, often it doesn’t show up very well…if at all.

the squint test
The “Squint” Test

When determining if your fonts will be legible in video format, squint at your slide. If you have trouble reading it while squinting, your audience will have trouble reading it in video format.

That’s why it’s recommended you don’t use red as a font color, or use fontssmaller than 28 point - this is 24 point, notice it’s hard to read while squinting.
