Overlay (Virtual Teleprompter for Zoom, Google Meet, etc)

TLDR: See video conferencing apps underneath your script.

Note for Apple/Mac users

1. You must enable Screen Recording for your browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc) - https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/control-access-to-screen-recording-on-mac-mchld6aa7d23/mac 
2. Safari does not offer the ability to select an individual window, so we must recommend using Chrome or Firefox in this case.


Speakflow's Overlay mode allows you to see other applications underneath your script while you're presenting. This means you can keep an eye on your audience through a video conference platform like Zoom, without having to switch windows or lose your place in your script.

Please note that Speakflow currently only allows you to view other applications in Overlay mode, not control them. To control other applications, you'll need to switch to them directly.

Using Overlay

  1. Join your video conference as usual, using a platform like Zoom, Webex, or Google Meet.
  2. In Speakflow, click the "Overlay" button in the bottom right corner of the screen. (If you're using a smaller screen, you may see an icon instead of a button.)
  3. In the "Overlay" modal that appears, click the "Window" tab and select the window you want to share.
  4. Click the "Share" button, and the selected window will appear behind your script.

Note: If you want to use Overlay while the browser is in fullscreen mode: First, select a window, then go fullscreen.
