esText is evil. With text, less is almost always more. One thing to avoid, slides with a lot of text, especially if its a repeat of what youre saying out loud. Its like if you give a paper handout in a meeting, everyones head goes down and they read, rather than staying heads-up and listening. If there are a lot of words on your slide, youre asking your audience to split their attention between what theyre reading and what theyre hearing. Thats really hard for a brain to do, and it compromises the effectiveness of both your slide text and your spoken words. If you cant avoid having text-y slides, try to progressively reveal text (like unveiling bullet points one by one) as you need it.
