Mastering Teleprompt: Your Guide to a Free Teleprompter Tool

Mastering Teleprompt: 

Your Guide to a Free Teleprompter Tool

Introduction to Teleprompt

Teleprompt is a versatile app available on Chromebooks and as a website. This tool can be incredibly useful for anyone needing a teleprompter for presentations, speeches, or recordings. It's user-friendly and offers a range of customization options to suit individual needs.

In this guide, we will walk you through how to use Teleprompt, from installing the app to adjusting settings for the best user experience.

Getting Started with Teleprompt

The first step in using Teleprompt is to get your text ready. You can copy and paste any text into the app. For demonstration purposes, I used some dad jokes to showcase the tool's functionality. One important tip is to add spaces between lines of text. This helps in making the text more readable as it scrolls. I will explain the significance of this in more detail later.

How to Use Teleprompt

After pasting your text into Teleprompt, you can start presenting by selecting the "Start Presenting" button. At the top of the screen, you will see your text appear with the spaces you added. You can press "Start" to begin scrolling through the text. The speed of the scrolling can be adjusted to match your reading pace. This is where the spacing becomes important; without it, the text can become jumbled and hard to read.

Installing the Teleprompt App

If you prefer to use Teleprompt as an app rather than a website, you can easily install it. Simply select the option to install the app from the website. Once installed, you can find the app on your Chromebook.

To locate the app, close out of the website and look for it in your app list. Open the app to start using it just like you would on the website.

Customizing Your Teleprompt Experience

Teleprompt offers several customization options to enhance your experience. You can adjust text direction, font, font size, and display settings. These options allow you to tailor the teleprompter to your specific needs.

Here are some of the customization options available:

Text Direction

Font Selection

Font Size

Display Colors

Text Margins

Practical Tips for Using Teleprompt

Using Teleprompt effectively requires some practice. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of the tool:

Add spaces between lines of text for better readability.

Adjust the scrolling speed to match your reading pace.

Practice with the app before using it for important presentations.

Use your mouse to scroll back up if needed, but be aware it may get jumpy.


Teleprompt is a powerful and free tool that can make your presentations smoother and more professional. By following this guide, you can set up and customize Teleprompt to fit your needs perfectly.
