" LIGHTS! COMPUTER! ACTION!" . . . COMPUTER? The display terminals of computers offer audiovisual capabilities similar to those of film, video, and slide/tape. These capabilities include speech, music, graphics, and animation (moving graphics). Although the quality of sound and visuals on terminals is not as good as that of other audiovisual media, terminals compensate by offering several unique capabilities. These capabilities, which are described here, make display terminals an attractive option to consider when you are going to produce an audiovisual presentation.
