This would be a plug-in app for camera (or microphone)-equipped
e-readers and e-reader equipped tablets (the assumption is being
made here that most modern tablets have a front facing camera
AND a microphone).
The plug-in app is linked to a website where volunteers put
together music playlists
popular bestsellers, such as the Lord of
the Rings, Wheel of Time, Star Wars Expanded Universe, etc. Upon
downloading a book from the ever-expanding list, the plug-in
prompts you to download the music pack for it. The music pack
costs something like 4 bucks.
While reading, the camera uses eye-tracking software and the
microphone listens for folks who whisper quietly to themselves as
they read to measure your reading pace and set the tempo for the
song selector to choose from.
And then it plays music in the background while you read, to
enhance your sensory immersion in the story. I realize that many
audio books feature music in the background but I can't really get
into a story being read by those terrible voice actors.
||Because film adaptations of epic fantasy novels are
often more painful than the audiobook version.
||I think music is distracting while I read, but some people like it. I suggest that the pace of the music be set by the pace of the page turning. After the first few pages the book would figure out how fast your are reading and sync the music to it.
||+ I like it, 2nd DIYs idea. It would have to be on a loop but
it would add ambiance like a video game
||Why not just buy an opera score and hum?
||Because the idea is to sync the music to the speed
at which you are reading.
