Slow Reading interfaces (source code)
This code repository contains the source files for the three prototype reading interfaces, the code for which can be found in the respective folders. All three are built using HTML/JS.
In 'abstract lines', the poem-text is blurred, the reader is able to reveal one line at a time by tapping the screen or using the down arrow.
In 'relineator', the poem is shown with its line-breaks removed. The reader can then use the up and down keys to progress though the text, adding the line-breaks back in.
'multiple views' presents the reader with selected words from the poem, bases on their part-of-speech category.
The poems in these interfaces have been replaced with placeholder text, which is clearly marked in the HTML and JS files.
