From the site: "CuePrompter is a free teleprompter/autocue service. Your browser works like a teleprompter -no extra software needed.

Check the system requirements and give it a try. Bookmark this site and come again when ever you need teleprompter services.
Free for any use (both commercial and non-commercial)."
