Here’s another good article and TEDx talk about this topic, hope it helps!
For the last talk I gave, I tried a variation on #14: I provided the audience with a link to the PDF—including speaker notes—at the *beginning* of the talk. Yeah, it gives the audience spoilers, but if I’m not engaging those listeners in real time, I’d rather they get something out of it. Plus, I script my entire talk in advance, so my speaker notes function as a transcript for people with difficulty hearing (or, for that matter, ADHD). I put that slide before my title slide, with a tinyurl link on it, then (if I can) I talk about something for at least 30 seconds so people have time to jot it down before I proceed.
