Advance availability of slides can also be helpful for the growing fraction of
participants for whom English is not a native language.
Also, the style of the slides makes a difference.
I was originally taught to produce very cryptic slides that have only a few key
words per bullet. These work well as a visual reference for a native-language
audience with a speaker providing the actual content.
For English as a second language audiences, a more verbose form is more helpful.
The trick, of course, is to still be relatively terse. So, whole readable
thoughts, but not extended prose.
This also helps when the slides are circulated without the speaker...
