When preparing your presentation video, please keep the following suggestions in mind:
Select a slide format that has high contrast and readable text.
Avoid busy patterns or images which can be difficult to read.
Use large text so that it is easy to read and displays well on some attendee’s devices.
Patterns and small text are prone to video compression artifacts and other distortions when the video is streamed.
People with Color Vision Deficiency (CVD) can have difficulties distinguishing between different colors in graphics and slides. There are resources online you can use to improve your color combinations: Coblis — Color Blindness Simulator.
Organize your content to be clear and approachable to everyone.
Instead of relying on equations or detailed definitions, you can connect better with your audience through real-world examples.
Explain your approach in the context of the questions you are trying to answer.
When explaining results, focus on how they tie back to your original questions.
Add images, demonstrations, and other illustrative tools where appropriate.
Limit bulleted lists to no more than five bullets and avoid cluttering your slides with text.
Be selective with visuals and ensure that all images have descriptive text for increased accessibility.
Since you are creating and editing the final video, you can easily include system demos or animations directly within the presentation.
Consider creating a script and designing your presentation with captioning in mind: minimize how much content you place on the lower third of your slides to improve the readability when the captioning is added.
