Concord > Concord: handling sounds & video


The point of it

Suppose you do a concordance of "elephant" and want to hear how the word is actually spoken in context. Is the last vowel a schwa? Does the second vowel sound like "i" or "e" or "u" or a schwa?


How to do it...

If you have defined tags which refer to multimedia files, and if there are any such tags in the "tag-context" of a given concordance line, you can hear or see the source multimedia. The tag will be parsed to identify the file needed, if necessary downloading it from a web address, and then played.



In this screenshot we see a concordance where there is a tag inserted periodically in the text file. To play the media file, press Control/M or choose File | Play media file, or double-click the Tag column.
