I've been looking for a free teleprompter - I thought surely it isn't that hard to make one. There's quite a few out there and I think I tried most of them - crippleware, limited features, web only. You have to run through that exercise to see how good this is. I don't understand the criticisms, maybe they refer to earlier versions. Currently for me it saves and loads scripts as .xml, you can paste text, there doesn't seem to be any length limit to the script, maybe to segments, it's alpha but hasn't crashed for me (Win7). I don't know if it displays mirrored text, that's not something I need but might affect you.
This program just doesn't work. The creation of a script is OK, not great but OK. The teleprompter part is OK, not great but ... If you create a script and save it ... it's gone forever. YOU CANNOT READ THE SCRIPT BACK IN! This last "feature" renders this program WORTHLESS!
Get about four minutes into the script and teleprompter jumps to the beginning.
Thanks for good program!
Telekast is good! Thanks.
