Title (EN) CLIENT-BASED SPEECH ENABLED WEB CONTENT
(FR) CONTENU WEB A CAPACITE VOCALE HEBERGE CHEZ LE CLIENT
Abstract:
(EN) A system for client-based speech enabled web content is disclosed. A client-side software program is free to download and the website owner or content provider subscribes to the service to speech enable their website content. The visitor downloads a small browser plug-in free from the enabled site. The system allows visitors the option of having website content read to them. As the website visitor moves the cursor over text, it is spoken aloud. The users have control over the voice, word pronunciations and speech highlighting. The system reads static and dynamic content on the fly rather than creating recorded sound files. The user can read text in the order that they want and is not forced to read the text on every page of a website. Other functionality include dual color highlighting, continuous read option, webmaster pronunciations control, and multi-lingual capabilities.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système s'appliquant à un contenu Web à capacité vocale hébergé chez le client. Un progiciel côté client se télécharge gratuitement et le propriétaire du site Web ou le fournisseur de contenu souscrit au service pour donner une capacité vocale au contenu de leur site. Le visiteur télécharge un petit module d'extension navigateur gratuitement depuis le site ayant acquis la capacité vocale. Le système permet aux visiteurs de se faire lire le contenu du site Web. Lorsque le visiteur du site Web déplace le curseur sur le texte, le système lui lit le texte. Les utilisateurs peuvent gérer la voix, les prononciations et les intonations. Le système lit le contenu statique et dynamique à la volée sans avoir à construire une séquence sonore. L'utilisateur peut lire le texte dans l'ordre où il veut et n'est pas obligé de lire le texte de chaque page du site Web. Une autre fonctionnalité comprend le soulignage bicolore, l'option lecture en continu, la gestion de la prononciation par le Webmestre et des fonctionnalités multilingues.
