New Splash Screen & About Dialog

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

For awhile now, I’ve felt that FloPrompter’s Splash Screen and About Dialog were a bit dull. The version of the logo that was on the dialogs wasn’t quite nice enough and the white backgrounds were a bit too starkly bright. So this weekend, I finally did something about it! Check ’em out! For easy comparisons, […]

“Mirroring” Text with FloPrompter :: Expected in 1Q 2008

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

Lately, we’ve gotten a lot of inquiries from prospective customers asking if FloPrompter can mirror the text on the teleprompter screen. Here’s an example of what the feature will look like (someday!): Unfortunately, the answer is that FloPrompter does not currently support this feature. This has been a wicked difficult feature to figure out… Of […]

Using FloPrompter with VBScript

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

A school in Texas uses VBScript to help automate some of the steps for their student-run news cast. They wrote me asking if I could help figure out how to activate a FloPrompter window using VBScript. I was certainly glad to help even though I’d barely even heard of VBScript before and had never worked […]

FloSpace FloPrompter 2.3.1 Released!

Saturday, October 13th, 2007

Yes, folks, it’s barely been a week, and already we’ve released a new version! A customer contacted us to request a continuous loop feature in the teleprompter, which I wrote about a few days ago. It’s a great idea and I think that a lot of other customers could benefit from it, as well. Continuous […]

FloPrompter Helps Elementary School Announce the News

Friday, October 12th, 2007

A media specialist at an elementary school in Michigan called me to today to make arrangements for a purchase order for FloPrompter. We got to talking and she told me how the students at her school are using FloPrompter. Every morning, a couple of students make the announcements over the school’s PA system. They also […]

FloPrompter Helps Courthouse Stay on Schedule

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Mr. D., an IT director for a district courthouse in a Southwestern state, sent me an email today to request a new feature for FloPrompter: continuous loop in the teleprompter player window. I couldn’t image what a courthouse would use FloPrompter for, let alone why they’d want a continuous loop feature, so I gave the […]

FloSpace FloPrompter Academic Pricing

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

Someone wrote to me the other day asking whether FloSpace FloPrompter is available with a special discount for academic institutions. The answer is most definitely yes! The academic pricing is 50% off for a single license. An even deeper discount is available for volume purchases. School media specialists, teachers, principals, and students are all eligible […]

FloSpace FloPrompter 2.3 Released!

Monday, October 8th, 2007

We’re pleased to announce the release of FloPrompter 2.3! FloPrompter version 2.3 has so many new features, we probably could have called it “3.0” — but we decided to just increment the number instead. This also means that it’s a free update for all current FloPrompter customers! The development emphasis for this release was on […]
