Save time by dictating your script directly into the app

It’s very easy to dictate your script directly into the teleprompter app.

  • Create a new script or edit an existing one.
  • Tap into the script editor and move the cursor to the position where you want the dictation to begin.
  • Press the Microphone icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • Speak naturally.
  • Press the keyboard button in the bottom right corner to finish dictating.

Turning on dictation

If you don’t see the microphone icon then you may need to activate dictation on your device. Open the Settings app and tap Keyboard > Enable Dictation so the switch moves to the on position.

Top tips

To use this feature more extensively, here are some shortcuts to be aware of.

  • “New line” – moves the cursor down 1 line
  • “New paragraph” – moves the cursor down 2 lines
  • “Full stop” or “Period” – adds a full stop
  • “Comma” – adds a comma
  • “Numeral five” – adds the number 5 rather than the word “five”
  • You can also change the capitalisation of text and add all types of punctuation.

Have a play around, it’s very intuitive.
