What is transparency?

transparency meaning in Information Science terminology / glossary / dictionary is:

A sheet of transparent material, such as glass, thin paper, or plastic, sometimes mounted in a frame, bearing text and/or image in color or black and white. Viewed by shining a light through the sheet, transparencies are often intended for projection on a large screen using an overhead projector or document camera. Standard size for film transparencies is 8 1/2 x 11 inches. Presentation software has replaced overhead transparencies, but a well-prepared presenter brings them as backup in case of equipment or network failure. Compare with overlay.
