Import a Script from your Computer

Importing a document from your computer into Teleprompter is easy. Follow these three simple steps to learn the process of getting your document from your computer onto your iOS device and into Teleprompter.

Step One: Save Your Document in a Compatible Format


Teleprompter currently only supports importing documents saved in the following formats:

  • Microsoft Word (.doc and .docx)
  • PDF (.pdf)
  • Rich Text (.rtf)
  • Plain Text (.txt)

Check that your document is saved in one of these formats. If you’re using Google Docs, use the export options to create a Microsoft Word, PDF, or Rich Text.

A file sharing service allows you to save documents in the cloud on your account, and access them from other device including iOS devices. Teleprompter can import directly from all of these services.
