Online Teleprompter (Free, Voice Activated)
I’m excited to share one of the easiest teleprompter software available for laptops. It’s called Online Teleprompter. This software will work for Windows AND Mac.I know, right?! Simply copy/paste your script in and it moves on its own. Here’s a few of the important features:
- It can only be used from the Google Chrome Browser. There are plans to eventually work for other browsers and mobile phone in the future but only time will tell.
- The website includes several different buttons. To import your script, copy and paste your script into the text box in the upper right.
- To get it Teleprompter ready you will want to use the “flip text” button. That is what allows you to read it off of the mirror.
- You can also use the restart button if you want to start the script over. If you want to spice it up, you can also add colors to your text to highlight on important topics.
- Lastly, you can change your font size to help it fill the entire screen so it is clear and easy to read.
- My favorite part of this software is that it is voice controlled! It moves on your own when you speak, so whether you talk fast or slow, it will follow your words very well. There will be times that it might trip up when you’re talking, so all you will need to do is repeat what wasn’t heard the first time around. With voice, it makes it very good for shooting your own videos when you are by yourself but not very good for live scenarios.
In conclusion, Online Teleprompter is a very good app that makes your videos look even more professional. It’s easy to use and has voice activation which can help streamline the video creation process.
