Images in Speeches

Adding visual elements (such as pictures, maps, or charts) can really enhance your speech. Make sure to always pay attention to copyright restrictions and give credit to the source for all images you use.


Wordle is a free site that lets you input text (such as President Obama's acceptance speech, seen below) and generate a "word cloud." Words appearing more frequently receive greater prominence in the cloud.
