Mac OS Productivity
Presentation Prompter turns your Mac into a teleprompter and helps you deliver successful presentations. It is built for live performers, newscasters, actors, public speakers, narrators, and anyone who has ever used cue cards or read from a script. Write or import scripts, then scroll them smoothly on one or more screens.
– Smooth scrolling, GPU–accelerated and tuned for particular hardware.
– Precision speed controls let you accommodate any speaking rate or text size.
– Dual–screen prompting displays your script on a second screen. Optionally flip the script only on the other screen if you’re using a mirror enclosure.
– Teleprompter operators can see exactly what the talent sees on their own screen, resulting in better communication between the operator and talent.
– Minimize talent eye movement with one–click margins.
– Maintain your reading position with an adjustable focus arrow.
– Never run over your allotted time! Show a clock and remaining time estimate below your script for time–awareness.
– Prevents accidental edits, screen saver activation, and other interferences while prompting.
– Mark sections of interest and jump to them instantly with bookmarks. Great for rehearsing a difficult part or managing any large script.
– Control the prompter using your keyboard and trackpad, or use a dedicated remote or controller.
– Write and modify scripts in a dedicated editing environment — there’s no need to use a separate app.
– Highlight speaker names, use a special style for difficult–to–pronounce words, and space lines perfectly to make them easier to read. Use any combination of fonts, colors, and spacing for readability and emphasis.
– Compatible with MS Word and other common file formats to quickly get existing content into Presentation Prompter.
– Print scripts for backup or rehearsal purposes. Ink saver features improve readability and print time.
Adds macOS 10.12 “Sierra” compatibility. This is a required update.
Adds new positioning behavior: The talent now scrolls to the operator's position when entering Prompt mode. This is the opposite of previous behavior (the operator’s position would scroll to the talent’s position). A new checkbox in the Prompt preferences named "Talent uses operator position" can be unchecked to revert to the previous behavior, if desired.
Adds a new Preview option: Hide edits from talent. When using two screens, this makes the second display say ”Standby” or appear “Blank” when in Edit mode. This obscures editing for the talent when in Edit mode, but shows the document in Prompt mode. This option is only available if the "Use second display" option above it is turned on. Custom images with company logos or other branding or messages may be shown, if desired. Use the pulldown menu next to the checkbox in the Preview window to change the image.
Swaps shortcuts for “Paste” and “Paste and Match Style”. This means “Paste” does a “Paste and Match Style” operation. The option previously named “Paste and Match Style” is now named “Paste as Copied” to more accurately explain what it does. This new behavior should save many hand contortions when editing.
Adds new shortcut: Command+Shift+U applies Transform > Uppercase to selected text.
