Any fonts are suitable for the screen, but sans-serif fonts are suitable for the projector. Size for headings should be 36 pt or more, for text – 22 pt or more. Do not forget that the length of the lines should not be long and be about 40-80 characters, and the number of lines should not exceed 5. The text should be aligned to the width of the slide.
