TextTime Revolutionizes Editorial Workflows

    BERLIN, Nov. 15 /CNW/ - Editorial workflow specialists Code Couture from
Berlin announce a new, indispensable tool for newsrooms producing podcasts,
radio and TV bulletins or other audio-based media for cross-media
applications. For copy editors it is now possible to easily project texts into
a fourth dimension: time.
    Until today, texts have traditionally been measured by word-counts,
character counts, lines, inches or centimeters. These units are standard at
magazines, newspapers and websites, but for podcasts or video productions they
are pretty much useless. Converting text lengths into reading lengths has been
a matter of estimation until now. TextTime solves the problem by determining
the reading length of any text as it is being composed. Writers and editors
can tell in a flash how long their texts will take to be read for broadcast.
There are five standard reader settings. TextTime makes it possible for
editors to write texts which can be immediately processed for cross-media
    TextTime becomes a component of the software preferred by editors such as
Adobe InCopy(R) or Microsoft Word(R). Specify a given limit, and TextTime
marks the text, indicating how much has to be cut/added to come in on time.
TextTime retails for 79 euros and is available for Adobe InCopy(R) at
http://www.code-couture.com. TextTime for Microsoft Word(R) is scheduled for
release shortly.
