Hi,

In the EPUB 3.01 Standard, which is based on HTML5 and the open web
platform, we have what is called the Media Overlay. This allows text and
audio synchronization. I would suggest looking at this. At EPUBtext.org we
are testing the various reading systems that support the EPUB 3 features,
including media overlays. We have a test media overlay title we are using
for testing accessibility, but we are in the early stages there. I could
email it to people who want it, or you could wait until it is officially
being tested.

Best
George

Hi everyone,
Or perhaps the better question is, includes what elements?
certainly the ability to control the content with keyboard functions, but 
what other factors are important,  what tools if any exist?
I mean that say allow for live captaining along with the streaming, if text 
is present reads this text aloud, or allows for a packaging model that will 
produce a near-live experience?
thanks,
karen
