Title
(EN) SOUNDTRACK FOR ELECTRONIC TEXT
(FR) PISTE SONORE POUR TEXTE ÉLECTRONIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A soundtrack creation method and user playback system for soundtracks synchronized to electronic text. Synchronization is achieved by maintaining a reading speed variable indicative of the user's reading speed. The system provides for multiple channels of audio to enable concurrent playback of two or more partially or entirely overlapping audio regions so as to create an audio output having, for example, sound effects, ambience, music or other audio features that are triggered to playback at specific portions in the electronic text to enhance the reading experience.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de création de piste sonore et un système de lecture d'utilisateur pour des pistes sonores synchronisées sur un texte électronique. Une synchronisation est obtenue par maintien d'une variable de vitesse de lecture indicative de la vitesse de lecture de l'utilisateur. Le système fournit de multiples canaux d'audio pour permettre une lecture simultanée de deux ou plus de deux régions audio se chevauchant partiellement ou entièrement de façon à créer une sortie audio ayant, par exemple, des effets sonores, une ambiance, de la musique ou d'autres caractéristiques audio qui sont déclenchés pour une lecture à des parties spécifiques dans le texte électronique pour améliorer l'expérience de lecture.
