There is a Kodak Pamhlet (# S-22) called Effective Lecture Slides
with some useful advises.

There are some of them.
- if you can read 2x2 slides without a magnifier, people in rear
seats can probably read them on the screen.

- use a dark-coloured background. It is better than black or white.

- limit each slide to 15-20 words, or 25-30 elements

-include titles to supplement, not duplicate, slide data

- use several simple slides rather than one complicated

and so on.
And there is also one reference:
Illustrations for Publications and Projection, ANSI Standard Y15.1-
