How to Use a Teleprompter Like a Pro

Using a teleprompter when speaking on camera can help you more clearly deliver information to your audience. It’s a tool that’s very useful in professional video production and is great to combine with our scripts available in our Edumarketing Toolbox.

Though useful, teleprompters aren’t always the easiest to use. Here are a few tips you can implement for a more natural performance when using a teleprompter.

Let’s start with the basics, what is a teleprompter?

What is a teleprompter?

A teleprompter is a device that displays lines of speech for a speaker. You can use apps to turn your phone into a teleprompter so you can easily record the video directly from your phone. We recommend the Joe Allen for iPhones and the Nano for Androids.

You may also use an external teleprompter on your digital camera. You can find our recommendations at www.edumarketing.com under equipment.

Whatever your setup, the teleprompter should never appear in the shot.

Teleprompters displays the script, allowing speakers to read it at their own pace.

Why should you use one?

The purpose of a teleprompter is to allow the presenter to deliver lines from the script without having to memorize them. It is very helpful for those who don’t have time to memorize an entire script or when you need to clearly deliver technical information. We’ve had brand new originators download the scripts from our Edumarketing Toolbox and be able to explain the loan process, guidelines and steps that would take them years to learn. It’s really not hard and we’ve included an example from one of our clients who is a brand new originator.

How do you use a teleprompter?

  1. Practice
  2. Practice speaking while reading from a teleprompter to get used to it before your shoot. Try to maintain a natural tone and speed; make adjustments to the teleprompter’s scrolling speed rather than changing how you speak. It will feel and sound so much more authentic.

So, if you want to record videos using a script, just grab your phone, download the app, upload a script and start recording.
