Key university speeches no longer need to be memorized

URBANA, Ill. (AP) — Speakers at ceremonial University of Illinois events are now able to use a teleprompter instead of burying their heads in scripts. Chancellor Robert Jones and President Timothy Killeen used rented teleprompters for the university’s sesquicentennial kickoff event. Robin Kaler is spokeswoman for the Urbana campus. She says Jones is comfortable using the device. It projects text in front of a speaker on clear screens.
