There are some situations where I don't have access to my speaker notes. Usually this is a good reason, such as I have mirrored my displays so I can demo or play a video without fiddling with my display settings in the middle of a talk. Sometimes, it's because something bad happened and I'm presenting from someone else's machine or a laptop that's completely off stage and I only have the comfort monitor. For those situations I use a printed set of backup speaker notes so I thought I'd share the script that creates these.

You need python installed, but the JSON extension is probably included, and that's all you need for this tool. The result is something like:
You can also use this approach to present JSON data that has been captured to another file, for example, it's a handy trick that I use often when developing something with JSON as a data format.
