texte i want to be read while the party script is on :

NARRATOR (VINCENT)
More like a theme party, I found some weird plants
And herbs I’d like to try them with a few friends.
NARRATOR (CARTER)
Are those the kind that shows a new universe
And proves theories about dimensions?
NARRATOR (SARAH)
Please, tell me it’s not that new experimental pill you’ve bought!
NARRATOR (CARTER)
I’d love to try it; you know just to see how it feels to
Be someone else and not being able to control yourself but for real.
NARRATOR (YAEL)
No, you’re wrong! It’s to feel part of something,
If we all take it, it’s like we’ll be a family, but forever.

LOL I see you use my template. :slight_smile:
you can just add it in between your camera movements like this:

&pan to zone 3 in 10

hi yesss thanks it helped a lot
but it glitches and stops to read the text it’s not in the same time you know

you can also write all the pans in one line using THEN like

&pan to zone 3 in 10 THEN cut to zone 2…
NARR
All you want to say

But it will be anyway depending on how fast reader reads and taps the screen so with long combination of camera movements and narrators it will always look bit differently to each reader.

If you want to 100% control when each speachbuble apears and disapears you would need to turn them to overlays.
