I feel like most of the time it's pretty easy to tell. If you say that it literally drives you insane, it's probably figurative, and if you say he was literally able to KO the other guy with one arm behind his back it's probably literal.
If it's confusing people are probably trying to be dicks.
The #1 time it's confusing is when someone says "Their pizza is literally the best I've ever had." or something to that extent.

you still have context, plus it's not the only word with contradiction definitions definition.
-Handicap: An advantage provided to ensure equality (like in golf), or a disadvantage that prevents equal achievement (like being paralyzed)
-Hold up: To support, or to impede
-Off: Deactivated, or activated (as an alarm clock went off)

The thing is, "literally", being an adverb, has a lot of cases like the phrase "literally impossible", where you would have to already know whether or not something is actually impossible in order to know which meaning of "literally" is in use, meaning the word itself has no purpose. In other words, the context already tells you whether or not it's meant literally.
Compare that to the examples you gave, which directly add information. You could say an alarm went off, or that you turned an alarm off; the context is necessary to know which "off" is meant, but it still adds its own meaning. You wouldn't be able to omit the word like you could with "literally".
