Mac Teleprompter Software
TeleKast is your means for creative communication. It is an application you can use for your school, church or any organization which needs features like a script editor and teleprompter. Basically, you first create a script and then you can use it for just about anything. Broadcast journalism, whether in a school or professional television studio, can benefit from the built in teleprompter. The scripts could also be used for purposes such as interviews, feature stories or someone reading when standing in front of a crowd.
Please let us know how we can make TeleKast work for you by submitting a feature request, or contributing to the users forum if you need technical support. And, finally, if you find a bug, please report it so we can fix it.

CAN Prompter (free)
CAN Prompter is a teleprompting application for MacOSX and Windows. It allows you “prompt” regular text files or script files created with CAN Script on up to three screens. It allows you to manage a list of separate files that will be displayed in order. You can speed up, pause or slow down the prompting rate. You can change the running order while prompting or loop the list for practice.
CAN Prompter is really designed for computers with two or more monitors, though it will run on a single screen. Each output can be configured as b/w or w/b and/or mirrored output. In a television studio the second monitor is usually attached to an NTSC/PAL video output and sent to the cameras so the talent can read the copy, but you could also just take the standard VGA/DVI out of your graphics card and distribute that.

Presentation Prompter (free, may purchase for $99)
Presentation Prompter helps you deliver successful presentations. It is built for anyone who has ever used cue cards or read from a script.
Scroll content smoothly on one screen or two. Optionally flip the script only on the other screen if you’re using a mirror enclosure. Teleprompter operators see exactly what the talent sees on their own screen, resulting in better communication between the operator and talent. Accommodate any speaking rate or text size with precision speed controls using your keyboard, trackpad, or a dedicated remote.
Adjust Presentation Prompter for your needs. Maintain your reading position with an adjustable focus arrow. Minimize talent eye movement with one-click margins. An on-screen clock and remaining time estimate help you stay within your allotted time. Don’t worry about accidental edits, screen saver activation, or other interferences while prompting.
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. You can use any combination of fonts, colors, and spacing for readability and emphasis. Make use of existing content and import anything in Microsoft Word, RTF, or other common file formats.
Use bookmarks to navigate a large script or rehearse specific parts. You can mark a section of interest and jump to it instantly from the bookmarks menu. Find the right spot by naming the bookmarks and seeing live previews of the nearby text.
