Hello,

I am very new to SMIL and very abd at at. I am having really bad trouble
constructing a simple presentation. At first I spent all of yesterday
creating the file with the accessibility options which is this:

<smil>

<head>
   <layout>
     <root-layout background-color="black" height="266" width="320"/>
     <region id="audio" background-color="black" top="26" left="0"
height="144" width="320"/>
     <region id="video" background-color="black" top="50" left="50"
height="144" width="320"/> 
     <region id="text" background-color="black" top="50" left="50"
height="144" width="320"/>
    
     <region id="captions" background-color="black" top="186" height="80"
left="0" width="320"/>
   </layout>
</head>

<body>
<seq>


<switch> <!-- if overdub off use first region, else second -->
    <par system-overdub="on">
        < region="video" src="cats.avi"
            alt="A cheeta running through grass"
            title="Cheeta Running"/>
        <audio stream region="audio" src="cheetarunning.wav"
            alt="audio description of cheeta running though grass"/>
    </par>
    <region="video" src="cats.avi"
            alt="A cheeta running through grass"
            title="Cheeta Running" 
            system-overdub="off"/>
    </switch>	

<switch> <!-- if captions off use first region, else second -->
    <par system-captions="on">
        <audio region="audio" audio src="al_gore_internet.wav"
            alt="Al Gore Internet"
            title="Al Gore"/>
        <textstream region="captions" src="Al_Gore.rt"
            alt="Al Gore Transcript"/>
    </par>
    <audio region="audio" audio audio src="al_gore_internet.wav"
            alt="Al Gore Internet"
            title="Al Gore" 
            system-captions="off"/>
    </switch>
	
</seq>  
</body>

</smil>

so i tried to find a program which would help me make the file and even to
use the program was hard. i mnaged to get the program to organise the the
presentation but the presentation has NO accessibility opptions on it so I
have tried to add accessbility code from above into it but it wont work. my
new code with out the sccessbibility options is:

<smil>
<head>
<meta name="Title" content="Accessability" />
<meta name="Author" content="" />
<meta name="Description" content="y" />
<meta name="Copyright" content="(c)" />
<meta name="Coding" content="Created with Fluition" />
<meta name="Base" content=""/>
<layout>
<root-layout id="C:\Users\Benji\Desktop\SMIL_Assignment\thisisit.SMIL"
width="650"  height="480" background-color="black" title="Accessability" />
<region id="Intro" left=" 3" top="4" width="253" height="480" z-index="1"
background-color="black" fit="" />
<region id="Video" left="261" top="4" width="197" height="204" z-index="1"
