Gong Real-time Control Examples
During playback the lyric is displayed and highlighted. This can be achieved because the song has already been indexed in the Gong system.
The user can also click on different words to hear their corresponding voices.
The user can select to play one page of the slides by clicking on the list of slides on the left-hand side of the webpage. Once a slide is selected the recorded speech will be played together with the display of the PowerPoint slide and its transcript. Because the speech is indexed the transcript is updated during playback.
Furthermore the playback speed of the lecture can be adjusted in five different levels anytime.
This example is a combination of a Flash program and the MiniGong applet. We have emulated the major functionalities of the MiniGong applet by building a Flash program on the example webpage. You can get the source of the Flash program here.
The Flash program appears to be functionally nearly an identical duplicate of the MiniGong applet it actually gives a different flavor with its hugely different interface and user interaction.
Most of the basic features are included in this interface. However some of the advanced features are not reproduced because either they are not suitable to be displayed using HTML or they are not released to the Gong real-time control interface.
