I'm guessing that was the keynote speaker I couldn't understand even though I 
have no hearing problems.  Speaking quickly and echo in the hall meant that it 
wasn't possible to hear from the back rows.

IMHO the timetable should be clearly marked as to which talks won't be 
available for viewing at a later date.  Also the few such talks should be in 
large rooms.

Talks which follow such a script won't be much good IMHO.  When I attend a 
conference I don't do so to see someone read from script.
