New DingLabs YouTube Channel

In case you haven't seen it, there is a new DingLabs channel on YouTube.

So far, I have videos for several audiobooks, with each word highlighted as it is spoken. It's rather hypnotizing :)

Here's a sample from Grimm's Fairy Tales:

Whether you're learning English, learning to read, refining your vocabulary or just looking to make a story more engaging, these videos with same-language-subtitles are a great resource.

Here is the content so far:
YouTube is a promising medium for synchronized text and audio. You can view it on any phone, tablet, notebook or desktop computer. It also supports subtitles that could be used for translations or other annotations.

Here are two more videos showing The Linguist audiobook in both English and Spanish, so you can get a feel for what it's like to follow along with an audiobook in a foreign language.

Please share your feedback or ideas for new content or features. And you can of course subscribe to the DingLabs YouTube channel to stay on top of new developments.
