Working Demo - Read Along Feature: Highlight Synchronized Text During Audio playback /w variable playback speed

Postby Captain.Moroni » Sun Oct 23, 2016 9:19 pm

:)

How can we make this happen?

Imagine: If the Gospel Library App could highlight synchronized text during Audio Playback, with variable playback speed, and to be able to click on any text to skip forward or backward, and have it play audio from that spot. The usefulness and benefits of this feature would help so many people in so many ways!

Check out this Demo below:

*To note the Developer of this example below showcases this feature using scripture from the (Holy Bible, English Standard Version)

Additional information about this demo can be found here: https://github.com/westonruter/html5-audio-read-along

I would love to request this feature and help facilitate it's development. It would be so powerful to have this feature in the Gospel Library App, even for PC or MAC, including this feature in mobile apps would be a plus.

The audio for the Gospel Library is already there and wouldn't be very hard to implement this feature, it would really be a matter of a little scripting.

Keywords: highlight synchronized text during audio playback, media overlay, variable playback speed

Would anyone else like to see this feature? It'd be great even if we could get it to work online, and even better with LDS Gospel app.

How did you line the text up with the audio? That seems like it would be the most time-consuming part, especially on a word-by-word level.
