Make your own Powerpoint Karaoke Slides
Want to build your own powerpoint karaoke slide decks? Here are some tips:
- Avoid complex slides, with dense graphics or lots of words. If the presenter is reading, they aren't talking.
- Tailor the slides to your audience. Look for what your audince members have in common, and include references to those kinds of things. Are there shared cultural references that you can include? Photos of well-known people in your group or local landmarks?
- Avoid obscure references. If a presenter doesn't recognize a person or reference on your slides, they may feel embarressed. Similarly, the audience won't see humor in references they don't recognize.
- Build the slides loosly around a topic. If all the slides are completely random, the presenter will have a difficult time turning them into a cohesive presentation. A title on the first slide can help with this.
- Avoid powerpoint animations & actions. The presenter will expect that each click will bring them to a new slide. To do otherwise will be disorienting.
- Make sure it is clear when the presenter is on the last slide. They'll lose their rhythm if they think there are more (or less) slides then there actually are.
- Don't cross the line. Avoid the situation where the presenter or audience is offended by what you've included.
