Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR AUDITORIALLY REPRESENTING PAGES OF HTML DATA
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE POUR LA REPRESENTATION SONORE DE PAGES DE DONNEES HTML
Abstract:
(EN) A method for representing HTML documents auditorially includes the steps of assigning (214) unique sounds to HTML tags and events encountered in an HTML document, producing the associated sounds whenever those tags or events are encountered (218), and representing encountered text as speech (220). Speech and non-speech sounds may be produced simultaneously or substantially simultaneously. A corresponding system (10) is also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé permettant la représentation audio de documents HTML, qui comprend les étapes suivantes: affectation (214) de sons uniques à des étiquettes et événements HTML dans un document HTML, production des sons associés à chaque occurrence de ces étiquettes ou événements (218), et représentation des occurrences de texte sous forme de sons vocaux (220). Les sons vocaux et non vocaux peuvent être engendrés simultanément ou de manière sensiblement simultanée. L'invention concerne également un système (10) correspondant au procédé décrit.
