    💡 For text to appear the correct way around on camera, ensure Flip Camera is unchecked. 

⚠️Please note
It is not possible to flip your recording after you've recorded, so make sure you enable the flip camera option prior to recording your video.

The iOS mobile app does not have a flip option for the front-facing camera, but if you use the rear-facing camera, your text will record properly.
