I'd like to make a web application that will enable teachers to create simple "books" with hot spots on each page. The hot spots might play a sound or do some other action like changing to another page. Really simple stuff.

It's spring break and 50 days until Maze Day ! I'm thinking of a new musical game but I need help with the music .

I've been talking with Diane and Anish about ideas for simple sound games that will help children who are blind learn to navigate. I'm writing these notes to help us get on the same page in our understanding about what would be helpful and what might be possible. Of course, much more could be done with the amazing technology Anish has in hand but I'm thinking very simply here to hopefully enable implementation in the web browser so anyone can play online.
I think I see how to make the
