Look natural on camera with a teleprompter that follows your voice and pauses when you improvise.

PromptSmart is the only “smart” teleprompter app. Our patented VoiceTrack™ speech recognition technology is revolutionary because it provides a robust prompting solution to automatically follow a speaker's voice in real time. PromptSmart is the market leading public speaking and video production tool.

Get PromptSmart Lite to try VoiceTrack™ risk-free before upgrading to our paid product, PromptSmart Pro. With Lite you can import files from the cloud, start up a presentation, rev-up our speech recognition engine and be amazed to see how your voice controls the pace of the scrolling and pauses when you pause. If you ad-lib or go off-script, VoiceTrack will wait patiently for you to begin reading again.

For video production professionals, VoiceTrack reduces the time you spend on shoots with amateur or semi-pro talent because VoiceTrack naturally and intuitively guides the speaker through the content. As a result, you will get higher quality and fewer takes, reducing the burden of your post-production as well. VoiceTrack is a powerful speech aid that will reduce the anxiety of public speaking and speaking on camera.

We asked tens of thousands of users what they liked most about our prompter app, and over 90% of respondents said it was VoiceTrack, calling it "awesome," "astonishing," "tremendous," “easy to use,” a “game changer”—“absolutely brilliant!!!” Our customers say it best. PromptSmart offers the most feature-rich, technologically advanced prompter app and video production solution on the market.

PromptSmart Lite is a free trial version of our more full-featured app, PromptSmart Pro.

Exactly what I needed

I gave presentation today using PrompSmart Light and it was exactly what I needed. I put my iPad on the podium and it did its best following my speech and queuing me along the way. (I also used it to practice the speech.)

What I like is that I spent almost zero time figuring it out. Grab my speech, paste it in. Press go. In practicing, I slowly evolved my speech and continually cut/pasted it in as I went.

I also video taped my speech for a zoom meeting but wanted better video than my iPad front camera offers so I couldn’t use the Pro features had I had it. Actually I couldn’t use this tool at all for that purpose because I couldn’t figure out a good way to hold my iPad in the right place and had to use my desktop computer (and a lesser prompter program instead) for that work.

Future features: I wrote my speech in Google Docs so I could share it for others to review. Though cut/paste was fine, it would be great if I could edit my speech in Google Docs and just have it show up in the prompter.

I also wish I had a way for emphasizing text… I see that the pro has some features for that. I just wanted to put words in bold or italics or to space them out in the prompter to let me visually see the desired flow of the text.

The lack of those features does not deter from the fact that this is a solid program that does what it does well. Thank you.

Fails when you need it most

I used this to give one of my speeches for school and oh boy did it disappoint. When I had finally spent hours rehearsing my speech and had fifteen minutes to record my final five minute speech it decided to completely malfunction on me. From not scrolling for the first five attempts it was infuriating. This app seems great but fails to execute so many times. It grew extremely irritating when I would have given the first three minutes of my speech perfectly only to have the app malfunction. I grew more and more desperate for it to work just one time through and time and time it would malfunction. It was because of the errors that I had to turn in my final speech with me scrolling on one part and then just when it seemed like I was in the clear it stopped scrolling and I had to go off memory for the last five sentences leading to me missing a few lines. I have tried to keep my response professional sounding but it was difficult considering how absolutely infuriating it was for the app to continuously malfunction. I am telling you if you are thinking about using this app for presentations to either start filming hours in advance or find an alternative.

Very Cool App

This app is pretty interesting. As a middle school teacher who is putting together a weekly morning live stream for our student body, my student talents find it difficult to read off our current teleprompter because either the words are moving too fast (and the student who is working the teleprompter is not too proficient with the scrolling). In just playing around with this app for just a few minutes, I came to quickly realize that I can now repurpose my student’s teleprompting job to somewhere else that would benefit our production and let the app do all the work. The way the app moves from line to line is easy to follow and, if a line or a word is skipped, the app automatically adjusts. That’s pretty cool. I may consider purchasing the pro version to take advantage of the other features. Nice job!! Wonderful app!!
