Fonts: Alternatives to Safe Fonts in PowerPoint

We learned about using safe fonts in PowerPoint, especially if you want to share your slides with others who may not have the required fonts. In simple terms, this means using fonts such as Calibri, Arial, or Times New Roman in your slides so that almost anyone can see the slides identically, as you see them! Sometimes, this may not be a bad idea, but you do have to narrow down your choices to the bare basics. Fortunately, there are some alternatives to safe fonts too, and some of these approaches may work for you. The best part is that you may be able to show your slides with the fonts that you like!
