Sound and Effects • Slide Show > Custom Animation > Effects tab > Sound • While experimenting with new and neat features it can be tempting to try to cram a lot into a slide presentation. • However, be cautious. Too many effects such as flying bullets,changing text colors and sound can distract the audience from the point of the presentation. • These extras are best saved for special slides to illustrate a graphic, or highlight a key point. • Don’t use these features indiscriminately. • Too many effects can compromise the credibility of your presentation.
Slide Transition • Slide Show > Slide Transition • Transition from one slide to the next with a variety of options from the menu. • Modify speed, sound, timing. • Apply to all slides or just selected ones. • Subtle or non “flashy” transitions are recommended for professional presentations.
Contrast Use a dark background with white or yellow text, or a light background with black or dark text. Sound and Effects Use selectively and rarely. Whimsical effects and sound are inappropriate for a large professional audience, but can help personalize a smaller, less formal presentation.
