Slides can be good for supporting the actual presentation, for people
who are present. Or they can be good for reading afterwards. They can
not be both, in my experience.

A better solution than slides designed for indepent reading is to have a
separate document for that. In many cases it can be just the outline one
writes before making the slides. Indeed, making such an outline often
results in a better presentation, and better slides. It is a little bit
more work, of course.
