People prepare for screencasts in different ways. Some folks will create detailed outlines, while others might jot down a few talking points. And then there are those who can just sit down and click record; they never formally prepare.
If you’re one of those people who likes a more scripted approach, you might want to consider CuePrompter.
CuePrompter is a free, online utility that transforms your laptop or monitor into a teleprompter. Just copy your script, talking points or outline and paste into CuePrompter, and you’ll never trip up on another screencast. You can control scrolling speed, type size and colors.
I probably wouldn’t use something like this for screencasting, but it could be something I’d use for video podcasts or impromptu interviews at conferences.
Anyway, it’s a great idea and I’d be interested to know how or if you’d use something like this.
