Hello, everyone. Thanks for the constant stream of useful information.
I've lurked and learned from this list for a while. It's great.

Has anyone seen/built an interface for presenting inline audio
translations of journal or magazine articles? A customer would like
to include translations for small blocks of an article. The blocks
will be of an arbitrary length. Each block would have a corresponding
Spanish and Chinese translation of the original English text. Their
idea is to include an icon at the end of each block that will play an
audio translation of that block. I suggested that maybe a full-article
translation is all that is necessary, but they think of the audio as
translation "helper" for non-English speaker.

Any pointers or suggestions aould be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Todd
