I never want teleprompters to be a problem.
As a teleprompter operator, I regularly get behind the scenes access with presenters with their speech writers or admins. This is where I learn that they’ve privately struggled reading with teleprompters because of the way letters appear to them. As someone who wants to make things go smoothly for the presenter AND crew, I’m always looking for solutions.
I worked an event earlier this year where one admin mentioned a cool solution— a special font that subtly differentiates the letters… and adds more space around the words with other tweaks.
You’ll notice the letters are fatter at the bottom, and the “m” for example, is leaning against the grain.
My choice was a font called “Open Dyslexic 3.” It’s shareware, and worth a lot to the right people.
