There’s some information that you wish to present that works well in visual form. For example, a graph.

You want your audience to access this information and understand it.

Which do you do:

  1. present the graph (map, table, photographic image, etc.) and keep talking, to the audience has to decide either to ignore the image and listen to you or look at read the image and ignore you?
  2. fall silent and allow them time to read?

You know the answer  🙂

Next in the series: mind the gaps.
