« Sleep Aids and Severe Side Effects | Main | Blackberry Outage Triggers Insomnia »

April 12, 2007


I have noticed that when I tried to read some text that was exactly the same as an audio voiceover on a video, I had a hard time following both at the same time. But PowerPoint presentations are just static images, and isn't it just like a professor using an overhead projector in a lecture? Doesn't seem too difficult. Though students do often fall asleep in class. I always figured it had more to do with plain boredomm, and the heat being cranked up in cold weather.

What?! Wow. I've never had a problem with this. To me it's always been like someone reading a story out loud.
