  27. It's really very dull to listen to someone read everything

    out that's on a slide (usually with their back to the audience so they can see the slide). Usually those people add nothing, either. Long strings of text are for handouts/ supporting web pages and not for the actual presentation itself. Doing “Powerpoint karoke” means that you are supporting your slide deck rather than your slide deck supporting your presentation. I know it sounds really obvious but lots of people do it. Don't be one of them.
