Abstract

Today's office environment provides numerous means for presenting a document to an office user. Enterprises which are engaged in the process of interchanging information may wish to associate a sound or audio description with a document. Enterprises may wish to interchange an audio and/or vocal tone representation of a document or distribution. This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document Interchange Architecture (DIA) Services whereby an enterprise can associate an audible sound to a specific document.

       Today's office environment provides numerous means for
presenting a document to an office user. Enterprises which are
engaged in the process of interchanging information may wish to
associate a sound or audio description with a document. Enterprises
may wish to interchange an audio and/or vocal tone representation of
a document or distribution. This article describes a mechanism for
IBM's Document Interchange Architecture (DIA) Services whereby  an
enterprise can associate an audible sound to a specific document.

      The Interchange Document Profile (IDP) is currently used by DIA
Services to describe the characteristics of a document as a whole. A
self-defining field within a document's IDP can be utilized to
reference an Audio Object Content Architecture (AOCA) document which
describes the digitized audio representation for the document. In
DIA's Interchange Document Profile a unique descriptor, the Library
Assigned Document Name or LADN, can be used to identify a MO:DCA
document which contains the digitized audio representation of the
document.

      This mechanism eliminates storing large amounts of digitized
information into a document's profile.  This mechanism also permits
an enterprise to store digitized audio representations separately
from a document which does not contain audio digitized data.
Enterprises do not have to understand Audio Object Content
Architecture to interchange the profile information which de...
