Documented formats for importing into Speeches?

The Speeches app looks like just what I need: cue cards on my iPhone instead of on paper. Using the search function, I don't see any documentation for the format of the imported data. I'd like to be able to generate the cue cards on my Mac and import them via DropBox to my iPhone. I've already tried this, having generated the cue cards in Word and saved them as a text file, but no joy. Pointers? Thanks!

    Ah, poking around in the app I think I've found the answer to my question. Thanks again!

    Hi Chip,
    Yes, you need to use either .txt or .rtf files (plain or rich text). You simply separate the cards by three hyphens on an otherwise empty line.
    That's it!
    Kind regards,
