We have two methods where I work. And both work tremendously well.
One is a super wide (4 score sheets wide) music stand that is covered in carpeting. The carpeting is not plush at all, kind of like you would find in an office, and tightly glued and conformed to the stand. I believe they were manufactured that way. They've been around for a lot longer than I have, so I don't know where we got them. There is absolutely no resonance ring from them like you get from plain old metal stands. Reflections off of them aren't too much of an issue either.
The other is a prompting system kind of like the one you mentioned. We asked specifically for that when we were designing our new facilities. It's a Winplus Autoscript system. The terminal to program and control it is in my control room, but we have a wired 9-pin remote that we can move between any of the rooms (control room, live room, vo booth). So, the talent can set the scrolling speed for themselves. It' very simple to use; and the few times we've used it with talent they loved it. If we have to jump around in a significant way, I'll just turn around real quick and click them to the line they need to be at. We also usually have a producer or two in the room with us, and that last little task is a great way to make them feel like they're contributing to the session while keeping them out of your hair.
To go along with those ideas, we also have picture monitors that can be fed from any source in our facility (including the Avid Mojo for my Pro Tools system). The company that built out our technical systems to an amazing job selecting those monitors too. Any noise they make is down in the noise floor and pretty much imperceptible. So, we can actually use them the way the system is designed.
