It seems to me this would be hugely useful for teleconferences or any presentations or public speaking engagements you might encounter. Instead of shuffling through papers, you can set up a laptop… maybe out of sight. You set the speed of the scroll, set the text size, and bammo! You’ve got your own personal teleprompter.
Mashable says the service is somewhat limited:
it works only on Windows OS-based systems, operates best in Internet Explorer, and appears to have a problem with representing apostrophes (see screenshot)
So my question is: is there really nothing out there like this? Nothing in PowerPoint that allows you to scroll personal text across a screen? Maybe I’m just PowerPoint naive, but the only thing I was able to find along these lines was something called Prompt 7.0.
Anyway, I’d use CuePrompter. It’s quick and dirty and down right simple.
