Narration in Virtual Environments: Enhancing Interaction with Preset Texts

Table of contents

What is Narration?

Narration is a crucial component in virtual environments, designed to display preset texts for various purposes like guiding game progress or providing instructions. It comes in two distinctive styles:

  • [Trigger Narration]: By equipping an object with the Narration (Trigger) component, interaction with an avatar activates a text box at the top of the screen.
  • [Story Narration]: The Narration (Story) component, when attached to an object, displays text at the top of the screen, appearing one letter at a time following avatar interaction.

Differences from Similar Components

  • Narration: Features a fixed-size text box that remains in a consistent position, regardless of camera zoom.
  • Info Popup: In contrast, this component’s display size varies with camera zoom and is positioned directly above the addressed object.
