Should You Create Widescreen Slides

Created: Wednesday, March 23, 2016, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:15 am



The same goof up happened but at yet another conference! The text size on the slide was teeny-weeny, and you could not see much, even if you squinted your eyes. This time, the problem was not that the presenter had used 8 point text on the slide; this text was 20 points, and that did not make it too small. Even then, you still could not read the text! Yet, the presenter was referring to numbers on the slide repeatedly, and the audience was supposed to read the content and comment! The problem was that a 16:9 Widescreen slide was projected on a Standard 4:3 projector/screen, thus making the slide’s screen estate very less indeed.

Make sure that you know whether you must create widescreen or standard slides for your next presentation.
