It may not be what you intended but this comes off as a bit disrespectful to the volunteers that make these kinds of events happen.
I think having people parrot back from an mp3 player would seriuosly degrade the quality of the presentations. I also think that adding a lot of post production work to the process is problematic.

Someone was talking to a slideshow, just like Drupalcons, and I took some pics of the screen. I didn't do anything special, just pointed the camera and let auto-everything do its magic. The results were fine, even on a DSLR approaching 10 years old.

It would mean absolutely no questions during the formal presentations though. Or just post the original audio and edit in questions later. Or something.
