The best teleprompter app for Windows 10

Imagine sitting in front of your laptop about to make a big presentation to your boss and co-workers. They are all represented by small video tiles on your screen. Now, imagine, instead of looking around for your notes, they are right there on the screen, overlaying the images of the participants. You can still see everyone. You can still look straight ahead. Instead of looking scattered, distracted, and disengaged, you look confident and comfortable.


Prerequisites:

  1. A Windows 10 PC

  2. Download the Virtual Teleprompter app from the Windows 10 store


Get Started with a Laptop Teleprompter app

With the virtual teleprompter, you have the laptop teleprompter you need to complete your remote and hybrid work toolkit. You can adjust the transparency of the overlay, speed, font size, and colors. Fine-tune everything and look natural and professional even while reading or referencing your notes. The intuitive controls mean that you will look and feel confident by your very next meeting or interview.


Once the Virtual Teleprompter app has finished installing from the Windows store, it will appear in the start menu.

How to read your notes while looking into the camera

1. Elevate your webcam and screen so they are at eye level.


2. Position the teleprompter application on top of your meeting application so you have a nice transparent overlay. Be careful not to place the teleprompter on top of the meeting controls so you can easily access the mute button, webcam on/off button, screenshare etc.


3. You can start or pause the scrolling text by pressing Enter on your keyboard or left click on the text.


4. You can adjust the speed of the scrolling text by using the keyboard UP and Down arrows.


5. You can adjust the font size, font color, transparency and also adjust several advanced features for right to left languages,
