Quick Start Guide

Let's be honest: No one reads manuals. That's why we start this guide with a short step-by-step "getting started" tutorial which will get you started in just 2 minutes.

Getting up and running in 6 easy steps

  1. Start Power Prompter by double clicking its application icon in Finder.

  2. Either start typing or open an existing document (.ppr, .txt, .rtf, .doc/docx are supported files you can open)

  3. Select the Script inspector and adjust the script properties to your liking. Adjust Words per Line until you are comfortable with the word count/font size.

  4. Select the Overlay inspector and choose which kind of indicator you would like to display during prompting.

  5. Select the Display inspector and choose on which displays the teleprompter window should appear. You can also open free floating teleprompter windows by pressing the New Teleprompter Window button.

  6. Now you're ready to press the Play toolbar item to start prompting. While the teleprompter is doing its work you can still adjust all settings from steps 3 through 5. You can also change the scroll speed until you can comfortably read the displayed text.
