AND HOW TO FIX YOURS USE GOOD FONTS AND COLORS Avoid: • Ccursive fonts • Distracing fonts • Elaborate Fonts • Small fonts USE ADEQUATE CONTRAST Can you see all 8 shapes below? MAKE SURE CONTENT CAN BE UNDERSTOOD WITHOUT COLOR USE PRECISE LANGUAGE • “He gave him his book” • Who owned the book? • Who was given the book? • “The boy’s mother gave him a haircut” • Whose hair was cut? • Newspaper headline: “Police helps dog bite victim.” AVOID SLIDES WITH TOO MUCH TEXT • Because, after all, who really wants to sit and read through a PowerPoint slide presentation with lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of text? I mean, come on. This is kinda ridiculous, don’t you think? Don’t we all have something better to do than to read lots and lots and lots of unnecessary, wordy words that serve no purpose but to fill up a page? Even if there was something important buried in here, you’d never know it. Sheesh. I wouldn’t have even typed all of this except to prove a point. Did you get it? Huh, did you? AVOID BUSY BACKGROUNDS AVOID TRANSITIONS AND ANIMATIONS • Especially really wild or distracting ones! AVOID LINKS OUT OF CONTEXT • http://webaim.org/techniques/alttext/ AVOID COMPLICATED/UNCLEAR DIAGRAMS/TABLES Chirality Carcinogens Nonsensical Ectoplasmosis Word Economics BE CAREFUL WHEN USING TABLES Don’t Formatting Split Cells Do Merge Cells Use Clear, Simple Structure Header Row Ever leave it off Add one every Images Don’t Include Them time Seriously, just don’t.
