When I open a .txt file in the TeleprompterPAD Web-APP, some characters are not displayed correctly, this happens with accents, German signs like ä, ö, ü, ß and other symbols. It also happens when using French, as many characters appear as a question mark within a white box.
Can I display my .txt script in Japanese, Chinese, Cyrillic or Arabic. Are these languages supported in the TeleprompterPAD® app?
Answer from TeleprompterPAD®
UPDATED: This article talks about loading TXT files. Remember that the installable version of the teleprompterpad app supports PDF, DOCX, ODT and TXT files in any language, but the Web-APP version of teleprompterpad only supports TXT files. Update your teleprompter pad app for free.
TeleprompterPAD® app supports scripts in ANY LANGUAGE that can be displayed on the OS of the device you are using. If your device can correctly display a text in the script language, then the TeleprompterPAD app can also do it.
If you are working with TXT text format, you just need to make sure to save the script with Unicode UTF-8 encoding. Unicode UTF-8 is the most widely used plain text encoding. All text editors support it and most use it by default.
If your script displays strange characters or replaces special characters on the original .txt with a "?" symbol, this is probably because the .txt is not in the format expected by the app.
When saving the txt from the text editor, make sure to choose UTF-8 encoding. This way you will avoid compatibility issues.
