Kansas 4-H Preparing and Using Visual Aids Visual aids such as posters, electronic slides, charts, models, and photos can help an audience understand and remember what a presenter is telling them. Visuals should have a definite purpose and be used only if they make the presentation more effective.

presentation before selecting the visual aid(s). Your audio-visuals should be directly relevant to your presentation topic. Each element of an audio-visual must be simple and contain only one message. Keep visual aids BRIEF.

Determine the difference between what you will say and what the visual aid will show. Do not read straight from your visuals.

Check with the meeting organizer to make sure the equipment you need will be there. If at all possible, arrive at the location of your presentation an hour early to check your equipment and room.

Preparing Visual Aids Once your presentation is complete, begin to identify the information you can present visually.

Keep in mind that the fundamental purpose for visuals is to help the audience understand your message. This section will address what to present and how to design it.

Keep it simple. Use no more than three to five bullet points per slide and keep your bullet points to a line of text, if possible. Your slides should be a guide to what you are going to say, not a verbatim account. Don’t use visual effects unless they actually add to your presentation. A subsequent article will outline how to construct your visual aids for the presentation.

Visual aids help in the communication of ideas and concepts. This is because visual aids: Rapidly transfer ideas. With only 10 minutes to make your presentation, a picture, figure, or table can communicate complex ideas more quickly than the spoken word.

1 Use neon colors. Neon colors will give your presentation enough color kick to keep the viewer’s attention. Use neon colors either as the background, as specific elements or details inside the slides.

The trick with neon is to not go overboard with the contrasts. Visual aids, or supplemental materials for public speaking that incorporate visuals, like posters, charts, or graphs, are an important part of every speech. They help audience members remember.

Visual storytelling The purpose of visual aids is to enhance comprehension and retention of important ideas. If a slide does not “aid” (truly add value), drop it.

Except in highly design-oriented or marketing-oriented presentations, the main purpose is not to entertain the audience per se, though creating visual interest helps engage us.

By James A. Baker Founder Baker Communications. Visual aids can reinforce and clarify key points in your presentation. Engaging both the eyes and the ears of your audience members improves both their understanding and their retention. Good visual aids create a sense of consistency and balance, and inspire a greater level confidence in the legitimacy of your message.

Text on visual aids should be written in point form, not paragraph form. Prepare aids so that they are visible to all participants. In general, one inch lettering is visible at 30 feet, two inches at sixty feet, and so on.

Between lines, allow blank space of one and one-half times the letter height. Visual Aids. Jasmine is preparing a speech about germs and staying healthy during flu season. She'll be giving the speech at her local library, and there will likely be a lot of people there.

The decisions you make in designing your visuals should be dictated by the content of your speech. If you use color, use it for a clear reason. If you use a border, keep it simple.

Whatever you do, make certain that your presentation aids will be perceived as carefully planned and executed elements of your speech. Finally, make sure that you integrate visual aids with your spoken presentation.

Display visuals aids long enough for comprehension, but not too long, to avoid distraction. Do not use the visual aids as a refuge. Speak to the audience, not the visual. Don't immediately talk over the visuals.

Allow your audience time to absorb them. And don't insult your audience by reading the visual aid to them. However, it may make sense to use hand-created visual aids in some cases—for instance, when showing a 3-D model would be effective.

If you follow this route, be sure to devote extra time to making sure your visual aids are neat, legible, and professional. Flip charts are inexpensive and quick visual aids used during face-to-face presentations. Preparing Visual Aids Get started early so that you have time to create or research visual aids that will truly support your presentation, not just provide “fluff.” Make sure you use a font or image large enough to be legible for those in the back of the room, and that you actually test your visual aids before the day of your presentation.

There are a number of other, more detailed guides available for preparing a presentation, and for creating the visual aids to go along with that presentation. Try looking for books on the subjects at your library (key words: presentation, public speaking, lecture, effective).

Here’s why visual aids prove to be powerful tools: Enhancing the Presentation Visual aids help to add an extra element of interest to the presentation. The subjects which may seem to be extremely boring, can be made more interesting.Carla used presentation software to prepare visual aids to accompany her speech.

She started creating slides several weeks before the speech to give her time to practice her delivery, and included at least a paragraph of text on each slide explaining the images being presented.
