    Default Typing Text Script options

    1) Script Title: Typing Text Script

    2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex10/text5.htm

    3) Describe problem: I'm finding Twey's Typing Text Script very useful for my students learning English. The students first study and learn a text then test themselves on it by attempting to say the words aloud just before they appear "typed" on the screen.

    For this reason, it would be useful to have a pause/play button so the typing can be halted and then resumed. I've searched on the Internet but it seems pausing javascript while running is not straightforward. Additionally and optionally, if possible, although I can control the speed as a variable in the programming, it would be useful if the students could speed up or slow down the appearance of the typing text via a button or similar.

    I'm using the "example2" version.

    Thanks in advance to any contributions made here.

    So this is just not feasible, right? Please let me know. Thanks.

    Still struggling with this. I have a start button just by calling the function. <button onclick="TypingText.runAll()"> Can't I have another button that will pause the text? And then resume? This is necessary as the texts are long and it gives time for the student to think.
