We have been communicating with each other since ages. But how many of us actually know how to communicate so efficiently that the receiver gets the intended message clearly. One method to connect well with the public is through a teleprompter. A teleprompter is a device that prompts the text while the speaker delivers it with such spontaneity that the audience develops an impression that the latter is speaking his mind. Let us discuss the points over how to use the teleprompter in an effective manner.

The tone of the script should be catchy and language should be clear. Not too much vocabulary should be used. The script should grab the attention of the audience. Always adjust the word count with the time of delivering the speech.
2.Practice the script well:- Rehearse the script until you are fully confident about it and ready to deliver in front of the public without hesitation. It would be good if you practice out loud that would be easy to find out our mistakes in the script too.

These constitute body language, hand movements and gestures. 80 percent of our communication is non verbal, so it is very necessary to use the movements properly that take out the best of our personality.
4.Maintain direct eye contact with the audience:- The basic advantage of the teleprompter is that you don’t have to look for the script in the paper, it is assembled at a place that makes direct contact with the camera so that the audience gets an illusion that you are expressing your ideas or thoughts without any assistance and this would concrete trust upon the speaker among the audience.
