Title: Technical Papers and Their Presentation

Author(s): Arthur Knapp (2)


As a rule not enough care is exercised by authors in the preparation and presentation of their technical papers. The writer offers definite advice for satisfactory oral delivery such as sufficiently loud and distinct speaking and direct address to the audience. He discusses the proper use of displays, giving special attention to the preparation of drawings and lantern slides. In general, the speaker should talk directly to his audience and so loudly and distinctly that those on the last row can hear him. His displays should be free from confusing detail and possess good visibility. In preparation of illustrations for the printed page, all lines and lettering should be made large enough to retain legibility in the necessary reduction.
