It's really important for remote speakers to speak slowly, clearly, and
spend extra time on proper enunciation and communication.  For those who
don't use WebEx, you may need to provide regular audio clues as to what
slide you're on - such as reading the title of the slide as you move to

Regarding audio - remote presenters should avoid Best Effort VoIP
clients on the computer - partly because of typical microphone quality
on laptops and because of packet drops, dropped calls, and distortion
from audio compression.  Presenting from a quiet conference room, with
no one else in the room and the door shut, sitting close to a standard
standalone conference telephone works really well.
