I need a teleprompter that that rolls my script as I speak. Do you have plans to add that? I'm just now signing up for Camtasia 2019.

This subject has come up in the past.
I think it's fair to say the idea has gotten very little traction over the years.
If you're working with dual monitors. There is a free app https://www.freetelepromptersoftware.com/windows/#toggle-id-1

It's a little clunky to use it.
You can set scrolling speed, text size, background color and other things to taste.
It runs on your primary monitor when you use it.
In the example below my primary monitor is 2560 by 1440. My secondary monitor is 1920 by 1080 on the right-hand side.
I could work can record on my secondary monitor while using the Teleprompter.
However, in order to stop and pause the Teleprompter. You have to first click on the Teleprompter to return focus to it. That's what I mean by it's a little clunky.
You may want to give it a try?

Regards, Joe

This is great! Question: There are different options for a Free Trial. Prompt V7.5, Prompt Dog, and a free demo with limited features. ($19.95 full version) Which one do you have/which would you recommend. Much appreciated.

I have the 100% free version.

To be fair, I've played around with it. But I've never worked with it extensively.
So my recommendation should be viewed in that light.

I've been using an app called PromptSmart Pro. It uses voice tracking to scroll and it works great.

Interesting,
How much does it cost. I see a free trial version with no mention of actual pricing.

I use the IOS version. This page has pricing: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/promptsmart-pro-teleprompter/id894811756 . They also sell Android and desktop studio version as well. As usual, way too many options in pricing.

Seems like a reasonable price. Its a shame there isn't a Desktop or Windows version.

Given the choices, I think the i-pad seems like the better option.Primarily because a phone is so small.

Hey Joe, it does run on Mac and Windows too. It's called the Studio edition: https://promptsmart.com/products/broadcast ... as I noted above, I use the IOS version.  I run it on my iPad, and I also read through my Caddy Buddy teleprompter that I have mounted on a tripod and use when recording video with my DSLR.

Thanks, the voice triggered scrolling option seems really nice. Streamlined {:>)
