Text on a screen doesn’t need to stand still. Composed for a device that turns on, words can slide, pop, fade, and layer in combinations that compel a reader’s attention and enhance their understanding and enjoyment. TextTelevision is a new media startup that converts static text into gently animating movies for immersive reading on handheld screens. We make a powerful new way to read, author, and publish text that will radically reshape books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, and textbooks through the coming decade.
