Automated Assistance in Evaluating the Design of On-screen Presentations

Karin Harbusch, Denise Dünnebier, Denis Krusko

Abstract

Oral presentations can profit decisively from high-quality layout of the accompanying on-screen presentation. Many oral talks fail to reach their audience due to overloaded slides, drawings with insufficient contrast, and other layout issues. In the area of web design, assistant systems are available nowadays which automatically check layout and style of web pages. In this paper, we introduce a tool whose application can help non-experts as well as presentation professionals to automatically evaluate important aspects of the layout and design of on-screen presentations. The system informs the user about layout-rule violation in a self-explanatory manner, if needed with supplementary visualizations. The paper describes a prototype that checks important general guidelines and standards for effective presentations. We believe that the system exemplifies a high-potential new application area for human-computer interaction and expert-assistance systems.
