MagicScroll® for Macintosh - V6 Now available!


Describe the photo or the page it links to

The world's first prompting software for Macintosh, MagicScroll® has prompted talent around the world for over 25 years. Easy to use, powerful and reliable, MagicScroll is the professional's tool for teleprompting on Mac OS X. Now available on the App Store, MagicScroll Version 6, compatible with OS X El Capitan, Sierra and High Sierra (10.11 thru 10.13).

Ease of Use


Prompting software, like any well designed software, should be intuitive to use. With MagicScroll, if you know the basics of how to use a mouse and the Macintosh, you can be up and prompting in minutes.

  • Point and Click Ease-of-Use
      The icon driven, interactive control panel is all you need to access all of MagicScroll's functions and features.

  • Cut, Paste and Copy of text
      Making changes to your script is easy and fast. Simply select the text to change, then cut it, copy it or paste in the changes.

  • Find & Replace
      Easily and quickly locate places in your script and save you time when making changes.

Simple File and Queue Management


Script files are opened in MagicScroll just like any other document on your Macintosh. Open a document... and start scrolling! We can open ".txt" and ".rtf" files natively. If you have a document created in another app, like Word, you can just open it, and then copy & paste it into a new MagicScroll document.

  • Multiple Open Scripts
      MagicScroll has the ability to open several documents at a time. Easily edit or scroll one script and then switch to another in the time it takes to finish reading this.

  • Script Cueing and Ordering
      Permits easy viewing and navigating to all open scripts. You can link and order scripts/windows to scroll continuously from one script to the next on large productions. You also can see Estimated Running Times for all open scripts.

  • Saveable Script Queues
      For larger productions, or prompting music productions with a file for each song, you can now name, save and recall "set lists" that will open all the files of the cue, and order them to the saved version.

Great Looking Prompter Text


The ultimate goal of good prompting is to help make your speaker feel comfortable and confident with their presentation. MagicScroll's easy to read text and ultra-smooth scrolling help keep your talent focused on the message rather than on the challenge of reading.

  • Smooth Scrolling
      There's no smoother scrolling text in the world of Mac Prompting software than MagicScroll. Using the latest in OpenGL technology, our highly tuned scrolling engine delivers live-rendered smooth text at nearly all speeds and sizes. Your mouse, trackball, trackpad or any USB controller device operates the slider that smoothly scrolls the video output of the script forward and backward.

  • Choice of Font Styles and Sizes
      Adjustable in one point increments up to 256 points, you'll find the exaxt size text that works best for your talent. You can also mix and match sizes in a document!

  • Text Styling
      Highlight text in Bold, Italics or Underlines to highlight words or phrases and aid in your speaker's delivery.

  • Color Text
      Use color to highlight words or sections to help differentiate talent and stage cues, or remind to your talent to emphasize key messages.

  • Inverse Text
      Easily output black/colored text on a white background, or white/colored text on a black background.

Prompter specific tools


Prompting sofware isn't just about making the words scroll smoothly for talent... it's also about helping your production move along quickly. We've added several tools that aid the prompter operator in making changes, navigating long files and ultimately, creating a great prompting experience for talent and crew.

  • Moveable Cue Pointer
      Adjust the arrow up or down to indicate where text should be when scrolling, helping the talent and the operator keep their places in the script.

  • Bookmarks
      Unlimited Bookmarks make getting around your script as easy as clicking the mouse. Each bookmark can be named for quick reference and all bookmarks are saved with each document.

  • Paperclips
      Quick reference points that can be set while scrolling and referred to at the end of a take.

  • Stopwatch
      Allows you to time your takes or rehearsals.

  • Looping
      Allows continual repeating of part or all of your script.

  • Reverse horizontal/vertical scan for image "flipping"
      This is a critical feature if your prompter hardware doesn't have options for flipping the image vertically or horizontally. With MagicScroll, you can change the 'output' to reverse scan, while the operator's screen still views the text 'normally.'

Great prompting lies ahead...

Whether you're an in-house production company, a student producing a low budget film for school, or an internationally famous touring rock band, MagicScroll has the ease of use, the features, and the affordability to be your choice for great prompting.

  • MagicScroll 6 is compatible with OS X 10.11 through 10.13 (High Sierra)
  • MagicScroll priced at $199.99 and is available from the macOS App store

MagicScroll 6 Manual

Now Available!



Message from
the Designer


Since the introduction of Version 1, MagicScroll has continuously evolved as we moved through versions 2, 3, 4, 5 and now the introduction of MagicScroll Version 6 for Mac OS X, designed for the latest versions of both the Macintosh line of computers and the Mac operating system.

Integrating customer feedback, and our own experience using MagicScroll in our rental business, we have selectively added features while increasing performance and ease-of-use. A novice with basic Mac skills can still easily operate MagicScroll, while a more dedicated professional will find new functionality that will help him/her achieve excellence in the field of teleprompting.

Our previous version (5.1.3) has been a workhorse for many years. But as Apple issued refinements to the OS, slowly things began to break, and our dedicated users requested an update to their favorite prompting system. Some users even tried other brands, but kept reminding us how MagicScroll is so much better and easier to use.

Our focus over the development of Version 6 was to maintain our famed ease of use and to ensure a reliable app. We didn’t go crazy on adding features, though a few new ones have made it into this version.

Over the course of 3 years, Version 6 faced many technical challenges as we re-wrote the code from the ground up. We’ve met those challenges, and now have a solid, simple-to-use, powerful solution for Macintosh that should keep our users happily prompting for the foreseeable future.

And yet, Most of MagicScroll’s features will go unnoticed by the producers and directors who expect the teleprompter to “just work”. But you, as an operator/owner, will know that great teleprompting can and does happen. I hope that MagicScroll helps you achieve that greatness.

Thank you for considering MagicScroll as your prompting software solution.
