## Some say that one may say the Bracha as part of learning (reading it from Shulchan Aruch or Rambam), however, many argue that this too is forbidden. <Ref> Piskei Teshuvot 209:7 </ref>
## Some say that one should think of the Bracha or at the name of Hashem and not verbalize it. <ref>Piskei Teshuvot 209:7, Kaf HaChaim 157:10, Vezot HaBracha (beginning of chapter 10, pg 87) </ref>
## Some say to read the פסוק of Vayivarech David until the words MeOlam VeAd Olam and then conclude the Bracha according to the appropriate ending. <Ref> Halichot Shlomo (end of chapter Tefillah 22:22) writes that one should recite the pasuk if Vayivarech Dovid... Baruch Atta Hashem Elokey Yisrael Avinu Molam Vad Olam and then continue with your bracha. He says that you can use that if you're unsure if you said a bracha but not if the halacha is that you don't recite a bracha because of a doubt. He says that saying it for no reason is a degradation of Hashem but saying it for a bracha starting with a pasuk isn't inappropriate.</ref>## Some say A minority opinion holds that you can recite the bracha in a manner of praising Hashem without intent to fulfill the bracha. However, this opinion is rejected.<ref>Chashukei Chemed Niddah 73a quotes relies on the Chavot Daat (Bet Hasafek 110:20) who holds that one can recite a bracha one isn't obligated in as a praise to Hashem as long as one doesn't intend for it to be a bracha.</ref>
