Speaker Reads Slides Speaker Reads Slides A speaker may put his entire presentation on his  slides. He turns his back to the audience and  reads the slides aloud. Perhaps he feels this  approach guarantees all the information will get to  the audience. This may be the most annoying way to give a  presentation. Audience members feel insulted:  they already know how to read! They wonder why  the lecturer doesn’t simply hand out a copy of the  slides.
