How to calculate your speech length according to your reading speed

Reading speed in words per minute (WPM) measures  how many words a person can read in one minute. Setting a reading speed in words per minute (WPM) is an important part of using a teleprompter effectively. Here's a quick guide on how to do it:

  1. Open your teleprompter software and look for the settings menu. You should see an option for adjusting the reading speed.
  2. Determine your reading speed. One way to do this is to use an online speed reading test, which will give you an estimate of how many words per minute you can comfortably read. Adjust the reading speed depending on your personal reading speed and the content you are reading.
  3. Pay attention to the text as it scrolls on the teleprompter. If you find that the speed is too fast or too slow, adjust the WPM accordingly until you find a comfortable pace.
  4. Practice with your new reading speed to make sure you can keep up with the scrolling text. Remember to stay relaxed and focused on the words, and use any other teleprompter features (such as font size) to make the text easier to read.
