This one goes into the “too cool for words” category. Nonetheless, I shall try to come up with some words to tell you about the incredible free online teleprompter I just discovered.
It’s called Cue Prompter and it is not only free, it’s extremely easy to use and has all the basic features you’ll need in a teleprompter.
Using a teleprompter will make your talking head videos so much better. With a teleprompter, you do not have to memorize your script. You’ll be able to stare straight into the camera while the words of your script float effortlessly by.
Using a teleprompter makes your talking head video look professional. There is not a professional TV person on the planet who does NOT use a teleprompter.
Until I found Cue Prompter, I would use various tricks like scotch taping a script to the bottom of the camera. That is certainly better than trying to memorize your script, but that method leaves a lot to be desired! For one thing, viewers will notice that your eyes are drifting downward as you speak.
I’ve also used my computer as a teleprompter while using the webcam. This method works fairly well, but te words do not advance by themselves and if you try and do it, your eyes will surely drift.
With Cue Prompter, the moving words let you keep your eyes up at camera level.
Cue Prompter is like a professional teleprompter in every way, except one. Cue Prompter is FREE! A “real” teleprompter isn’t!

I hope this information helps you make better videos!
