Coloring Page Sound-tracks
You can spice up your coloring pages by using sound-tracks. You can have a sound-track that plays one or more times after a coloring page loads, and you can have another that plays before going to a new page.
The sound-tracks can be used for many things such as...
- Background music.
- Sound effects.
For example, on a coloring page of a monkey you could do one of the followng...
- Play some "jungle rhythms" music.
- Have a narrator saying "Suddenly a monkey swung down from the tree".
- Have an audio instruction, "Color in the monkey. What color should his banana be?"
- Play an audio of a monkey chattering.
Sound tracks should be in MP3 format, and are placed in the "pages" folder along wiith the coloring page images.
To tell the program which track to play include a track attribute on the appropriate page node in your coloring book XML file. You can also include a repeat attribute to tell it how many times to play.
If you want audio to play before going to a new page, include a trackout attribute.
Here is an example...
<page source="monkey.gif" track="monkeynoise.mp3" repeat="3" trackout="byebye.mp3"/>
If you don't specify any track, then the program plays the default page-swish sound for a new page. If you want no sound at all you can specify track="none".
