Hi... Multimodal Interaction Working Group!

I saw the new draft of EmotionML, and among the notes, you have
"ISSUE-127: Must EmotionML work with HTML 5? Think of possible use cases."

Now, of course it's up to you to decide if EmotionML "MUST" work with HTML5, but as far as I (as a potential user of it) am concerned, it should. As for use case - you've actually illustrated one with SMIL. The same one, minus the animation (well... picture switching), can be taken for HTML5 as well.

If EmotionML could easily be added into (X)HTML text, it could be used to guide screen readers that support it to read text with a certain kind of emotion. Of course, it will be a while before both the language and the interpreters are sophisticated enough to replace actual audio recordings, but one can always try to go in that direction ^_^.

Regards,
Vasil Rangelov
