Text~Tone(sm): Auditory Highlighting/Rating of Text

Friends/

Not Only Is The World Not Black&White, It Is Not Just A Carousel of Color, Nor Haptic

Humans Are MultiModal Creatures With MultiModal Minds

[http://www.ncte.org/edpolicy/multimodal]


Here Within I Propose The Development and Implementation of Technology That Would Allow Authors/Readers to Highlight Text With Varying Degrees of Sound.


SOUND
Wikipedia:Sound is vibration transmitted through a solid, liquid, or gas; particularly, sound means those vibrations composed of frequencies capable of being detected by ears.



Using Other/Related Audio/Auditory Technologies Readers Would be Able To Hear That Range of Tones Layered Over The Text Within A Corpus And/Or Substitute And/Or Supplement An Author's Audio/Auditory Layer


Such Tones Could Be Used to Denote Another Dimension Of The Text OR Denote Relative Importance.


THINK That This Is FarFetched? Not Really. Nearly A Decade Ago I Began to Explore Auditory Browsing Interaction in Web and non-Web Databases

The NextWAVe(sm)
