All of last week, I attended multiple sessions at an international conference. Most of these sessions had slides — and each slide was emotive, in some way or the other. Some slides were captivating, some held attention, and some evoked curiosity. There were other slides that evoked curiosity of another kind — of why the text on the slides was so tiny that the audience could not read, some slides had white text on a yellow background — that again could not be read. Slides do evoke emotions, but all emotions may not be fired by the program used to create the slides. In many ways, projector technology may have improved by leaps and bounds, but it still does not come close to the capabilities of today’s LED screens. Thus white text on a deep yellow background may actually be completely readable on an LED screen, but washed out when projected. This washed out result does evoke an emotion as far as the audience is concerned, and that emotion is rarely positive.
