    Have you seen a speech which has content everywhere, and also you wonder, which part to look at first? The slide may have charts on the one hand, text on another side pictures on another side. They presenter assumes that since they are explaining what is written, the audience will ‘get it’.

    Such slides typically happen when presenters use presentation templates provided and their presentation software. While such complex presentation templates make presenter look intelligent, they confuse the crowd.

    The reason behind such ppt slides confusing the audience is – how we read.

    Once we read, eyes typically travel inside the following order:

    1. From left to right

    2. The top to the down and

    3. Clockwise

    Considering this order of reading slides, can you imagine how confused the crowd becomes attempting to see the slides with many different content?

    A great presentation template should have content put in wherein audience can understand without feeling confused. The presenter’s aim is always to always maintain the audience focused on his content and not on reading difficult to understand slides.

    Just how much content around the slide is just too much? Here are 2 simple rules to discover if you find an excessive amount of content for the slide.

    1. Keep to the eye movement: While using the order in which eyes move, look at slide and see if your eye movements are smooth. In the event the eyes move in a zigzag way, then this ppt template is just too complex and needs being simplified.

    As an example if your slide requires the reader to advance his eyes from left to right, it is simple enough. Whether it requires the audience you just read from left to right and up to down and left to right again, it is too complex.

    2. Two is company, three can be a crowd: This common saying holds beneficial to slides too. Should there be greater than 2 types of elements for the slide, it’s usually too complex. By elements, I am talking about a text box or graph or an image. For instance, whenever a presentation template has text box, image plus a table, it counts as 3 elements. It is probably too complex and needs being simplified.

    Remember, that adding a whole new slide doesn’t cost anything. It is advisable to include another slide rather than confuse your audience. Once you confuse your audience, they stop paying focus on what you are saying.

    So, if you are deciding on a ppt template, a speech background or perhaps a readily available presentation template, remember to use 2 elements or fewer in the slide. We view many templates being offered which use strong colours and also too many elements over a slide.

    Make sure to maintain audience dedicated to your message.
