What is Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP)?
Rapid Serial Visual Presentation is the process of blasting words onto the screen. In this dynamic representation of text, each word is flashed on the screen one at a time in succession. The reader is less inclined to “oralize” the text, rather the reader interprets whole words as meaningful written symbols. Automatic re-reading of adjacent previous text is therefore rendered impossible. This results in much higher reading speeds than are possible with conventional techniques.
GnomeRSVP at this time provides the following features:
- Gnome compliance
- Font Selection
- Color Selection
- Text, HTML, and PDF file support
- Session Support
- Remembers Last Location and Position
- URL support!
- Variable speed from 120 to 6000 words per minute
As development increases expect to see the following:
- Support for more file formats
- Read from buffer
- Gnome 1.4
- Gtk+ 1.2
- Gtk Perl (version >= 0.7006 required)
