Using a teleprompter can be a great way to effectively communicate the contents of a speech in a somewhat controlled way so that you don’t forget what you want to say. This way, you can focus on really delivering the message and connecting with your audience.
So, how much does a teleprompter cost? The price range for a teleprompter varies from 130 USD to thousands of dollars. If you are looking for a teleprompter that can be used for small events – or practicing your speech – see these teleprompters here.
Here are some good, affordable teleprompters that I have used and therefore can recommend:
- Little Prompter, The Compact Personal Teleprompter for (works also with iOS or Android)
- Parrot Teleprompter 2 Portable Teleprompter for Smartphone with Remote Control
- Parrot Teleprompter (Easy to use free parrot teleprompter app works with all major smartphone)
Little Prompter, The Compact Personal Teleprompter for DSLRs, Webcams, and Built-in Laptop Cameras
This teleprompter is excellent for instructors, business professionals, journalists etc and it has earned a 4.9 out of 5-star rating on Amazon. It works well with many built-in laptop cameras and microphones and is very easy to use. Just install a camera app, and you are ready to go. Also, it pairs easily with most of the webcams out there.
The Little prompter is lightweight (weighs less than a pound), fairly small (6”x6”x6”) and fits in the palm of your hand.
Parrot Teleprompter 2 Portable Teleprompter for Smartphone with Remote Control
This teleprompter is even smaller than Little prompter. With the size of 4 x 4.5″ and weight 0.4 lb, it is very handy to use. It has earned a 4.8 out of 5-star rating on Amazon and is perfect if you are planning on using the teleprompter script from your smartphone – it won’t hold anything bigger than a smartphone!
Parrot Teleprompter, The Worlds Most Portable and Affordable Teleprompter
This another teleprompter from Parrot I have successfully used is very compact and portable, which means you can take it anywhere you go. It works with the most common camcorders and slur cameras, and it has earned a 4.9 out of 5-star rating on Amazon.
The Parrot app is flexible and allows you to write scripts, change font size, change scroll speed, change margins, everything you could ever want. Although I have to mention that if you want to use the full version of the app, then you need to purchase it separately.
Other than that, it is a great product an has worked very well.
