Study on the science of PowerPoint comprehension?

Can anyone point me to the study in which the main takeaway was, "Don't just read the text off of your powerpoint slides because it hurts audience comprehension"?

I remember reading a study about a year ago that talked about the way people comprehend information. Thre was a lot about multisensory, but there was a section specifically in regard to powerpoint presentations. The implication was that people who just write out their talking notes on slides were shooting themselves in the foot.
Doing a google search for it now brings up a lot of opinion pieces, powerpoint how-tos, etc. and I can't seem to wade through it all to find this piece.
Anyone remember it or have better google-fu than I?
