Screen reader speed in demo

Hi all

When demonstrating the use of a screen reader to developers and designers,
is it better to reflect real world where the user may have the rate set to
high-speed, which has great impact but can be uninteligable to non-screen
reader users, or to have the rate set to a normal speaking rate that they
can understand? A compromise might be to demonstrate a power-user speed,
then to slow it down to an intelligable speed.

Thanks in anticipation.
