This is a good layout to inform us on how to use presentation aids. That's something I need to work on. By saying sound I thought our voices could be used as aids.

Thanks for the post. It seems like this list has more examples of visual aids than the book did. Now, I feel like I have more options for my demonstration speech coming up, and my informative after that.

I like clear visual aids when using posters or other visual aids such as graphs or images. Great examples of others in this post.

That was very helpful. It gives me a better understanding of what is expected and what is acceptable. My only issue would be the creativity. I have a hard time trying make something that other people think is boring interesting.

Helpful additions to help us do a better presentation in class and in the workplace. Since I conduct many trainings, just using PowerPoint does create a sleepy audience. Using video and other instruments helps the trainees better understand how to be trained.
