Visualising discourse structure in interactive documents

Mancini, Clara; Pietsch, Christian and Scott, Donia (2007). Visualising discourse structure in interactive documents. In: Proceedings of the Eleventh European Workshop on Natural Language Generation, Association for Computational Linguistics, USA, pp. 89–92.



In this paper we introduce a method for generating interactive documents which exploits the visual features of hypertext to represent discourse structure. We explore the consistent and principled use of graphics and animation to support navigation and comprehension of non-linear text, where textual discourse markers do not always work effectively.
