Now that you understand several kinds of cue points, you can select whichever one works best for your project. The framework built in this chapter lets you easily create new templates for displaying captions or responding to cue points by displaying graphics or animations. All you have to do is synchronize and design.
Let me give you a few more ideas of ways I’ve added synchronization beyond simply text captions. I built a kiosk for a history museum that included traditional captions of the narrator’s script but that also had graphic highlights that appeared on a detailed map to supplement the audio discussion. In another project, I temporarily hid the video clip when the actor asked the user to interact with a survey question (built in Flash) that would appear in place of the video. There are so many more uses for captions and synchronization. As you can do for all the projects in this book, you can send me your ideas or any templates you build, and I can then share them with other readers on my website (http://www.phillipkerman.com/at-work/).
