Proposal Structured Audio
|Proposal pages help us get from feature requests into actual plans. This page is a proposal for a structured audio format, primarily for language learners.|
Proposal pages are used on an ongoing basis by the Audacity development team and are open to edits from visitors to the wiki. They are a good way to get community feedback on a proposal.
- Note: Proposals for Google Summer of Code projects are significantly different in structure, are submitted via Google's web app and may or may not have a corresponding proposal page.
- Make structured playback editing tools (for simple scenarios) within Audacity.
- Publish the standard so that other apps start using it and shaping it.
- Integrate with open source closed-captioning solutions.
- James Crook - Keen to see this.
From some discussion:
- On your mobile phone, load up a language learning lesson, click play, click a button to go back by a logical unit (a whole sentence) another to extend the pause at the end of each sentence, press to get a new word or phrase explained in simpler terms (but still in the foreign language), reach a multiple choice and what you choose affects where you go next.
Rockbox players, Android, MIDI controllers, voice-command input. Use at Khan Academy for educational videos.
AAC format supports chapter markers, so we should probably support that in Import/Export.
- Gale: I guess a minor addiional consideration is that if you use .M4B extension that also supports bookmarking in the player app (playback resumes from where left off).
