Hello,



To reduce the frustration factor, try starting off with a smilFile that

works and make your changes to that. That's what I do.



Ambulant demos: 

http://old-www.cwi.nl/projects/Ambulant/Demos.html



There's some SMIL 2 smilFiles at my website:

At quick glace at your code you have a region element in the body
section, it belongs in the head section. I just uploaded a detailed

overview of the SMIL 3.0 REC Language Profile. In this overview you

can see what element goes where in the SMIL Document structure and what
attributes they have.

Good Luck, SMIL has been around for a while but now with smilText and

xiph media, Web multimedia is really only at 1.0 IMHO.

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>
-------------------------------

it doesnt work at all

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.

new code with out the sccessbibility options is:

<smil>

</layout>
</head>
<body>
