Whether you're leading an all-hands meeting as a manager or conducting a webinar as a professor, chances are you'll be using Zoom to connect with your audience. But how can you keep an eye on your audience and read your notes at the same time? At Speakflow, we've developed two handy features to solve this challenge: Overlay and Bookmarks. These tools are designed to help you seamlessly blend engaging with your audience and staying on top of your presentation script.

Overlaying a Teleprompter Over Zoom

Overlay is exactly what it sounds like. It's a feature in Speakflow that overlays your script right over the Zoom interface. This means that while you're presenting, you can read your notes and still keep an eye on your audience's reactions and engagement in real-time.

It's all about making your virtual presentations more fluid and interactive. You won't have to switch between applications or lose your place in your script. The goal is to provide a seamless experience where you feel connected with your audience, just as if you were in the same room, all while ensuring your presentation continues smoothly.

Bookmarks for Quick Navigation

Being able to see how everyone is reacting to your delivery is obviously crucial. Additionally, you need to be able to move around your script freely without the typical linear format of a teleprompter. That’s where bookmarks come in.

Bookmarks allow users to mark specific sections within their script. In a webinar setting, there may be moments when you need to repeat or revisit certain sections of your presentation. With bookmarks, you can easily jump back to these sections, making it easier to manage multiple takes or address audience questions related to specific parts of your content.

Adding Bookmarks

Adding bookmarks in Speakflow is straightforward: hover over a paragraph and click the "Bookmark" icon. Once added, a circle appears on the screen, which, when clicked, automatically scrolls the script to the bookmarked section.

Additionally, you can simply add [Bookmark] anywhere in your script and it will show up on the presentation screen.

Choosing the right scroll mode

Finally, you’ll want to make sure that you’re using the right scroll mode. For this particular application we recommend using manual mode. Auto mode is typically too linear, and voice recognition can be unreliable during live presentations. Setting this up is an easy two-step process:

  1. Open your script and enter Presentation Mode.
  2. Set the scroll mode to manual.

Sync the teleprompter to your mobile device

Additionally, if you’d like to sit a little further from your computer, or don’t have access to the mouse during your presentation, you can try Remote syncing to a mobile device. If that sounds complicated, I promise it’s not.

In fact, it’s one step: simply open the same script and enter Presentation Mode on your mobile device. Once the script is open on both devices, they’ll sync automatically. We recommend using the same orientation for both devices.

The bookmarks feature becomes even more powerful when used with Speakflow's Remote feature. This allows you to sync your place in the script across several devices, offering additional flexibility and control during your webinar presentation.

Overlay keeps you connected with your audience without losing track of your script, and Bookmarks allow for effortless navigation through your content. Embrace these features to elevate your virtual presentations, making them more impactful and memorable for every participant.
