About PromptSmart:
PromptSmart is the preeminent iOS public speaking aid/ teleprompter app available. With patent-pending VoiceTrackTM speech recognition technology, PromptSmart seamlessly follows spoken words and pauses during a speech, adjusting the speed of scrolling text in real time based on the speaker’s actual words and pace – all without the need for a data connection. Because the speaker is in total control over the scrolling, PromptSmart delivers a more intuitive experience than even traditional teleprompters and needs no speed calibration. PromptSmart also includes a digital notecard feature for speakers who prefer to leverage notes/ outlines rather than fully written speeches. Now, a speaker can stay on-point much easier with functionality to create, edit, arrange, and view speaking notes.

Whatever the speaker’s style, PromptSmart delivers professional tools with cutting edge technology and an easy-to-use interface. PromptSmart is the ultimate presentation companion for anyone getting up in front of a crowd or using a script: public figures, clergy, students, lecturers, video producers/ actors, or even bridesmaids and best men!

Who created PromptSmart?
PromptSmart was born out of a passion for public speaking. As a Communications Fellow at Wharton Business School, PromptSmart CEO and Founder Eric Sadkin coached and mentored students in the art of public speaking. Realizing that many orators would be better supported by an intuitive, speaker-controlled teleprompter and a way to digitally create and display notes, Sadkin also recognized that today’s mobile devices could address these needs. With these in mind, PromptSmart was created.
