Mini remote/speaker notes overview

The mini remote allows you to control mmhmm when connected to other video conferencing apps. It also enables you to write down speaker notes (like a teleprompter) for each slide of your presentation, so you can refer to them while recording your video.

Note: The mini remote is not available on mmhmm in a web browser.
