Teleprompter is an easy-to-use yet powerful prompting application.

Using Teleprompter is as easy a typing in your script and clicking play, but don’t be fooled by Teleprompter’s simplicity! It also comes jam packed with useful features:

• Remote Control:
Control Teleprompter remotely with your iPhone or with another Mac over WiFi or Bluetooth.
Requires the free Teleprompter Controller app, or another device running Teleprompter.

• Remote Editing:
Open documents over the network with File > Open from Network.
Edit the text, or control the document just as if it was on your own computer.
If the document becomes disconnected, it remains open for networked redundancy!

• Remote Broadcast:
Click one checkmark to start prompting on another Mac or iPad.

(Networking can be password protected or disabled entirely.)

• Screen Mirroring:
Clone your script onto any number of monitors, or into another window.
Choose to flip each copy horizontally, vertically, or both.
Use the "Text Blocker" to temporarily hide the text with an image of your choice.

• Import and Export RTF and Doc files:
Change the font color and size during import, export, or print.

• Bookmarks:
Save segments anywhere in your script to quickly jump to them later.
Use keyboard shortcuts to jump between segments.
Give each segment a duration, and Teleprompter will let you know if you're ahead or behind schedule.

• Automatic Speed Control:
Need to be at a certain sentence at certain time?
No problem.
Enable Automatic Speed, and Teleprompter will give each segment the duration you choose. It can even pause between segments.

• Customizable Resolution Settings
Make sure your script stays consistent or optimize it for different sized screens by keeping it the same width and height. Add margins to sides of the text.

• Customizable Overlay
Use the intuitive Overlay editor to keep you or the talent on track.
Add the customizable arrow, the time elapsed or remaining, or a clock to show over the script.
Or, add a custom image.

• Fully integrated iPad version
Teleprompter and Teleprompter for iPad work seamlessly together. You can save document in iCloud, or remotely control or broadcast prompting.

• Customizable Keyboard and Mouse settings:
Change keyboard shortcuts for play, pause, reset, jump, record, and others.
Enable or disable scrolling to change speed, or use the mouse buttons to start and stop.

• Support for Wheels and other external control devices:
Try out your device using the included trial period, and configure it in the Preferences. If your device doesn't work perfectly, contact support at and we'll get your device working.

• Great Performance
Teleprompter has been carefully engineered to provide distraction-free, buttery smooth scrolling.
Teleprompter utilizes multi-threaded rendering to effectively push multiple high resolution displays.

Use Teleprompter to help record videos, give speeches, read your textbook, and more!

Very good functionality; window is a little odd

This is a very good app for scrolling the content. It has many functions that allow control of speed, etc. However, I wish the window was a little easier to handle (the text size automatically adjusts larger or smaller when resizing the window). I guess I will get used to it with experience. It also lacks a line-spacing control. Increasing the amount of space between lines can make it easier to read the content, which is the primary purpose of the app, but there is no way to increase/decrease line-spacing aside from selecting a font size.

Developer Response ,

Hi Wallyrocks! We've added line spacing controls in the newest version.

The text changes size so that the actual line width remains constant. This way, the way the text wraps doesn't change based on the size of the window. This means that Teleprompter can render the same script consistently even on multiple windows (or on other devices.)

It's definitely a trade-off, as the text can get larger or smaller depending on the window size. However, we think it's the right decision for a more consistent experience in most cases.

This is the one to get

If you're on a Mac and need a teleprompter, look no further. This is the one to get. I've tired out several of the others and none of them come close in their functionality and ease of use. You can operate it remotely with another device using their remote control which also works flawlessly or if you're on a network, you can operate the remote device right from your main computer. And the fact that for a one-time extremely reasonable fee you can purchase a lifetime license is just one more thing that makes this app a no brainer. Don't think about it. Just get it.

Very Functional and Easy to Use

I have been using TP for a few months now and am finding it very user-friendly and much better than other choices for 20-minute recorded presentations.
I really like the segments feature so I can get through the document easily for edits. I like being able to space lines according to my pacing and am learning how to do that more efficiently.
I do find the scroll bar a bit less responsive than I expect. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Overall, like this app a LOT.
