Clarity of speech is often considered in public speaking. It is one of the qualities of a good speech, and without it, a speech can seem vague and cluttered. Whether written or spoken, a clear speech is far easier to understand, and it passes its message across well.
Clarity is a skill that has a massive influence on the success of the speech. A cluttered or unnecessarily verbose speech will only confuse the audience. The audience’s intelligence level should also influence the clarity of the speech.
