You see, a teleprompter is nothing but a piece of glass in front of the lens, placed at a 45 degree angle. This glass then reflects an image from some sort of display below it, allowing me, your host, to see it. Sometimes a teleprompter has its display above the glass, but in this case it’s below. This display can be pretty much anything at all. In my case, it’s just a cheap tablet. The only thing the display must be able to do is reverse the image so that it appears normally in the reflection. You could simply practice reading backwards text; I personally don’t find that to be all that difficult, but it is significantly easier to simply read normal words and not sdrawkcab era taht sdrow. Of course, the key here is that the camera is looking through this piece of glass at me, your charming host. This means that when I’m looking at the words, I’m pretty much looking right at the camera lens.
