Hi Adam,

WebVTT has been built to be flexible for this kind of time aligned data, so
you should be able to use it for that.

What are the use cases behind this? What is your motivation? Are you
suggesting new standards be developed?

For example, the cue entry and cue exit JavaScript is already possible when
on a web page, no new standards necessary.

Is the microscope use cases big enough to create a standard for or is it
just for a research piece or a company's proprietary solution?

Cheers,
Silvia.
