As a future possibility... can you make it mouse toggable to go to FULL SCREEN during playback? That would be a nice feature.... once it is playing I don't need the frame etc. I am building a miror teleprompter and would rather use your software than the stuff I prevoiusly got to use... but IT is full screen.

Also, I want to THANK YOU for the scrolling speed control. In my 4:30 talking head I on several occasions needed to slow down or speed up. I discovered that what thought would inuitively be true wasn't, namely that once a good speed was set it would remain constant for my reading, it varied throughout the read.

Chris, you can go full screen in most browsers by hitting F11 (at least on PC - not so much on Mac). The only way to do fullscreen in another way is to make your browser physically larger. I personally don't like doing this cause then it usually remains that way, and I hate it when sites resize my browser.
With that said, I'll see what I can do.

Thanks.

Fantastic - used it today in a studio setup. As soon as he pay's I'm throwing some your way..

Had the laptop just below the lens and all I could see was the slightest eye flicker. Next time I'll stick to the centre of the screen rather than go edge to edge - and it should be perfect.

thanks muchly

I think the new version of Safari (verion 4) does full screen browsing.

Cool! thanks for the shots. I noticed you were using the pop-out control. Did you move that to an external monitor?

So it's been around 2 months since EasyPrompter launched - I'd like to hear some more feedback from people. Are you finding it useful? Is it working reliably? Want to see more/new features?

Currently on the table are 2 features:
1 - adjust the location of the "read here" triangle

2 - vary line spacing (double spaced text etc)

Which do you want to see happen first? What other improvements are you interested in?
Thanks!

You will enjoy this. I work for a large CA state agency... we even have our own TV studio. I recently saw a quickie video they did for some emergency situation and it was clear they did NOT have a prompter.

I sent them a link to yours.

Thanks for EasyPromter

Mike,

I want to thank you so much for the EasyPrompter. I am just getting started producing some videos for my company and found your program.

It is terrific. I found that it is simple to use and adds a level of professionalism to my productions. I am finding that I still have some practice to make it flow naturally.

Anyway your program is great and I thank you for making this available.

If you are going to make any future revisions, I would recommend a feature that makes the top line highlighted so that it the on camera presenter can pace with the script.

The program is great as is, but it would be a nice feature.

Thanks again for the effort.

Jason

Good Idea - for now, the arrow on the left is meant for that purpose. Currently I have very little time to work on this (6 week old baby), but I may implement this in the future.

Thanks for your interest.

I'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue with EasyPrompter ( I just sent Mike an email outlining the issue but figured more input couldn't hurt)

I used the stand alone version the other day with my daughter. Copied and pasted the script from Open office and it worked fine, until I mirrored the text. Then at a few spots in the text it took words from the middle of the sentence and put them after the period. It happened in the same spot every time. I save the file as .rtf and .txt to see if the .odt Open office format was the issue, but the same thing happened. Actually at some point in the test, I think it was with .txt I got only one word per line when the text was mirrored.

anyone else have this issue. I'm using a Dell D400 laptop with XP and Firefox.

I will hopefully be able to look at the issue soon. The whole mirroring of text is a ridiculous undertaking, even though it seems like it should be straight forward. This is why other web-based solutions either don't have it or fake it by hard wrapping like every 3rd word.
Anyways, it's a challenge. I'll try to fix it soon.
