Hello List,

we looked at SMIL some time ago and decided there was not enough support 
from the browsers to make implementing it worthwhile. So we developed 
our own timeline solution, Testimony Software, and wrote an authoring 
toolkit to make content creation simple and quick.

You can see what we've been able to accomplish at 
http://www.acoh.com.au, with a paper decribing an implementation of 
Testimony Software at Project Jukebox of the University of Alaska 
Fairbanks available from http://www.acoh.com.au/OHA2007.pdf. Our latest 
project is a teachers guide at http://www.accteachersguide.com and this 
provides excerpts from the 1956 Alaska Constitution Convention recordings.

We understand that our solution does not have as much flexibility as the 
SMIL spec but it suffices for our purposes and lets our clients focus on 
their content whilst we sort out the technology, a message getting much 

I'm happy to answer any questions.
