Insightful read. For me, I don’t like when presenters speak through slides, w/o giving a moment to read it. Because either way I think I’m losing valuable information.

If you need to be given time to read a slide, then there's probably too much information on the slide anyway. You're supposed to keep information on a slide minimal to prevent the exact situation you're describing.

Most of the info is supposed to come from the speaker and not from the presentation. The presentation should support the speaker, not the other way around.
