Cueprompter is a highly useful Java tool for reading scripts or text for videos of any sort, especially for bloggers.

Thanks zridling. Nice find. (Too bad I didn't know about this three months ago when I really could have used it.  ;D)

Here's a few things I found when I was looking for stuff for my project:

1) Links if you want to make your own teleprompter hardware:

   Fully DIY (see below): http://www.instructa...olling-teleprompter/

  -or-

 Pro Mirror Kit:  http://www.freetelep.../buyteleprompter.htm
  8)

2) Some free cue software that can be run on your PC without needing a web connection:

3) A javascript scroller that can be used as is - or for inspiration to write your own!

I tried the solutions quoted above but found the limited features frustrating. I eventually ended up with this teleprompter software. They have a nice discount offer going at the moment.

They also offer a DIY teleprompter plans as a free download.

Hope this helps someone.
