Abstract
(EN)
A card or sheet of printed information contains an electronic memory device (106) or a coded section that can be read by a reader unit (101 or 201). The reader unit outputs an audio file from the memory device (106) or coded section to supplement the printed information. The memory device or coded section may also be linked to an internet site at which more complete or multi-media files are available.

Dans cette invention, on utilise une carte ou une feuille d'informations imprimées qui contient une mémoire électronique (106) ou une section codée pouvant être lue par une unité de lecture (101 ou 201). L'unité de lecture extrait un fichier audio de la mémoire (106) ou de la section codée, pour compléter des informations imprimées. La mémoire ou la section codée peuvent également être liées à un site Internet sur lequel des fichiers plus complets ou des fichiers multimédia sont disponibles.
