April Maker Challenge 19/30: Text Visualizer
What does a novel look like when displayed in colors and patterns? This program would take the digitized text of a novel and translate it into colors, shapes, and movement. Maybe the swear words would be zig-zags and the passive verbs gray blobs. Certain action-oriented keywords might make for dramatic movement, and a preponderance of certain nouns would add lines. Each page would get its own frame, so you could see the evolution of the book on screen -- without the inconvenience of actually reading it!
