A Linking and Interaction Evaluation Test Set for SMIL
Presented at the ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia , Santa Cruz, CA USA
The SMIL 2.0 Language profile support several mechanisms for controlling interactivity in a SMIL 2.0 presentation. Unfortunately, the SMIL standard testset does not verify complex interactions of linking/interaction behavior of SMIL players and applications. This paper describes a linking and interaction test suite that was developed as part of the Ambulant SMIL Player project. We begin with a short review of SMIL’s linking and interaction facilities, then describe aspects of the test suite that have proven to highlight faults in current SMIL players.
