An Audio Visual Presentation Works Better Every Time
Human beings have five senses. The more of their senses to which you can appeal during a presentation, the more likely they are to respond
favorably and remember the contents of your presentation. This applies to sales pitches, classrooms, and everything in between. Stimulating smell,
taste, and touch can be challenging, but creating a good audio visual presentation is within anyone's reach.
The two components of an audio visual presentation are pictures, captions, videos, or other visual aids, and music or spoken words, in other words
audio files. An audio visual presentation can be as simple as a professor lecturing to the class while displaying slides. It can be as complex as a
product launch with a live band, stage light show, smoke, video screens, and lasers. It generally falls somewhere in between. Today, with the advent
of PowerPoint computer projection technology, someone will create PowerPoint slides to accompany their presentation. These slides can also include
embedded sound files or video clips.
Audio visual presentations work so much better than just simply visual or simply audio for a number of reasons. First, if you provide more stimuli for
your audience they are less likely to get bored and lose focus. Second, it has been proven that people learn in different ways. If you tap the two main
ways people learn in an audio visual presentation, you are more likely to get all your information across.
