Lyric scrolling function ?

I'm a member of a music group which is involved in community singalong sessions. We are about to publish a song book but would like to supplement that by providing a scrolling function with adaptable speed on to a large screen for our audiences. Wondering if such a function is available on any of the Magix products. Ideally we would like to copy and paste the lyrics from our song book to Magix probably to create an MP4 file which would then loaded on to a USB. Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank You

. . . . a scrolling function with adaptable speed on to a large screen for our audiences. . . . .

Video with audio by its nature is a single speed media, changing the speed also varies the audio speed and induces pitch changes.

For video with audio, it is possible to create scrolling text both vertically and horizontally, however the rate is determined in the program before exporting as MP4 video and cannot be changed on playback..

Other styles are possible see this topic and this comment for alternatives which can be done with Photostory, Movie Studio and Video Pro X
