Why are some transitions not recommended?

Automatic transitions can be distracting, can cause screen readers to re-read slides, can read parts of the slide out of order, and/or may not give users enough time to read slide content.

Some transitions may also be too distracting for low vision users. Acceptable transitions include:

  • Fly in from left
  • Wipe right
  • Typewriter
  • Appear
  • Laser from right
