Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR TIMING THE DELIVERY OF A SPEECH
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE MINUTAGE D'UN DISCOURS
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for timing the delivery of a speech comprises a rectangular case (11) bearing a linear array of light emittng diodes (13) arranged into three groups of different colors each corresponding to a portion of the speech. A microcontroller (22) is configured to activate the LED's (13) in sequence and adjustments are provided to control the rate at which LED's (13) are activated within each group. The color of a presently activated LED (13) informs the speaker at a glance which portion of the speech he should be delivering as well as the time remaining to complete such portion.
(FR) Procédé et appareil de minutage d'un discours, comprenant un boîtier rectangulaire (11) portant un réseau linéaire de diodes électroluminescentes (13) agencées en trois groupes de couleurs différentes, correspondant chacun à une partie du discours. Un microcontrôleur (22) est configuré pour activer les diodes luminescentes (13) en séquence, et l'on a prévu des réglages permettant de réguler la vitesse à laquelle les diodes luminescentes (13) sont activées dans chaque groupe. La couleur d'une diode luminescente (13) activée indique à l'orateur instantanément quelle partie du discours il doit prononcer, ainsi que le temps encore disponible pour achever ladite partie.
