If you are looking for a teleprompter app that does it all, look no further than OBS Teleprompter. This app lets you edit your text, control the scrolling speed, record your speech, and view it remotely on another device. Read on to discover more features of OBS Teleprompter.


Teleprompter app features three prompter modes: Autoscroll, Manual and Follow.

Scroll Modes


The autoscroll mode facilitates automatic and steady text scrolling. While the presenter follows the script, you might need to modify the pace spontaneously. This can be achieved by tapping the and buttons, using number keys on your keyboard, or directly inputting a number between 1 and 10.

Autoscroll mode is appropriate for a wide array of scenarios and particularly dependable during live talks, public speaking engagements, or video recordings.

Please, note that you can always combine the speed of scolling with the font size and line height settings. The scrolling of the text can be reduced by increasing the fonts and/or line height.


In manual mode, you can scroll the text up or down by a single line using the up and down buttons on your keyboard. This functionality is also compatible with presentation clickers. When using a clicker, the “Next” button corresponds to scrolling down, while the “Previous” button corresponds to scrolling up.

The method is useful in situations where you want full control over the scrolling, without it scrolling at a constant pace.


In the enhanced “Follow” mode, words fade into a gray one after the other, mimicking the natural cadence of spoken words. The scrolling engages once the end of the line is reached. This mode bears a resemblance to the flow of karaoke, which is why we’ve aptly named it “Follow.”

Within this mode, the pace of reading can be easily adjusted to your preference. You can adjust it by tapping the and buttons, or alternatively, by directly entering a number ranging from 1 to 100.
