Interactive Audio in Firefox 4 Beta

Firefox 3.5 logo
The latest version of Firefox - 4 Beta - has some very interesting features, among them new audio and video tags in HTML 5.

According to the Mozilla Blog, "...developers can read and write raw audio data within the browser, presenting audio information in completely new ways that could allow, for example, for people to visually experience a speech or a song through Firefox."

The blog post has a video (which just has a music playing, no dialogue) that shows some of the neat ways we'll be able to visually interpret music in the new Firefox. There are many ways developers can display data and visualize sound.

Try out the Firefox 4 Beta here.

  1. This should be a lesson for corporations fighting over the cost of providing captions in various media formats. The visual interpretation of music indicated here sounds awesome...thanks for letting the world know!
