I have a problem learning/remembering lines. I found free software called "Mirror script pro" that works very nicely. It scrolls any text on your computer screen. (it also reverses for use with a mirror) You can change the text size and the speed that it scrolls. I use it with ax tracs and have it scroll "my lines" while the vent figures lines and music play on my computer. I video tape my pratices so I can watch for any bad habits. I thought this might help anyone else who has memory issues.
By the way I just bought 3 more figures and can't wait to get them: Bongo, Vulture, Rooster!!!!
Valuable tip, Randy! Thank you so much! I have a dream of someday doing a one man (multi-puppet) show of A Christmas Carol, but it means memorizing a lot of dialogue. I have pages and pages memorized of multiple shows, but it all came from doing. Nothing was memorized completely before it was first performed, but eventually it sticks. I can't do that with a well known story.

Thanks for this post! Its very helpful for all kinds of uses with puppets.
http://proverbteleprompter.codeplex.com/ is another teleprompter software with lots of function and settings. It even has arrows for your eyeline, which can be moved higher, or lower so you can keep your place in your script and it's free also.
