Patent inventors: Sacha Krstulovic, Cagdas Bilen, Neil Cooper, Julian Harris, Arnoldas Jasonas, Joe Lynas, Chris Mitchell
Control of navigation of a content item is carried out by detection of non-verbal sound events. On the basis of receipt of one or more non-verbal sound event reports, a navigation tool (AR glasses, smart display, smartphone, earbuds, VR headset, etc) is provided with a corresponding sequence of navigation commands. The correspondence between navigation command sequences and non-verbal sound events is established through analysis or markup of the content item.
