Chapter 21. Multimedia and Presentation ... > Using Fonts in Your Presentations

Using Fonts in Your Presentations

Fonts are usually thought of as the specific typeface design for letters, numbers and other characters that make up the text of a slide. Windows supports an almost unlimited array of fonts, so using the correct one for the job is a fairly important issue. Picture the front page of a typical newspaper in your mind for a moment. There are headlines that are presented in larger, bolder fonts than the rest of the page, designed to catch your eye as you read. Smaller sub-headlines may punctuate sections of an article and allow the reader to browse through the content more quickly. The text of the stories is in a smaller, less dramatic font so that reading them won't become tiring on the eyes. The point here is that fonts are to be used as a design element to make your work more easily absorbed by the audience. When you make presentations with a tool like PowerPoint, you want your material to be easily understood with enough pizzazz to keep everyone's attention long enough for you to make your point. Fonts can go a long way toward getting your point across to an audience.
