Re: XeLaTeX pst-asr: slow compile Topic is solved

Thanks for your quick reply. I'm afraid I don't understand how I'd actually carry out either method you recommend. Could you please provide some more details? I chased up the pgfmanual for tikz, but at 1165 pages and with only a single hit for the string "pspicture" I decided it would be m...

XeLaTeX pst-asr: slow compile Topic is solved

Re: Icon for a Loudspeaker Topic is solved

Hello, For posterity, I found the following code created a speaker symbol which dimensions that fit well into a 12pt document (with mathptmx for Times style font). \newcommand{\spk}[1]{ \begin{tikzpicture}[#1] \draw[thick,rounded corners=0.1pt, fill=black] (0,0.0909) -- (0,0.1636) -- (0.0909,0.1636)...

Shortcut for Media File Topic is solved

Hello, I'm writing my linguistics thesis in which I plan on embedding a number of sound files. I use the same code to embed each file, the only difference being the name of the MP3 file. Is it possible to define a shortcut to reduce the length of the code I use each time I embed a file? I currently ...

Re: Icon for a Loudspeaker Topic is solved

Thanks, the third solution is the closest to what I want.

Re: Informational Text for embedded Media Files Topic is solved

Thanks, this is exactly what I wanted!

Could you post the code for how I'd extend \includemediaorposter to display different poster text depending on whether or not the media is included?

I'm using the media9 package to embed MP3 files into my linguistics thesis. Is it possible with the draft option of media9 to display <poster text> rather than "a box [...] that has the dimensions of <poster text>"? A typical example from my thesis is the following, where <poster text> con...

Icon for a Loudspeaker Topic is solved

Is there's a font or package that would allow me to input a speaker icon, or loudspeaker icon? At the moment I'm using the picture from this page with the following code to resize it. \includegraphics[height=1.55ex]{speaker.eps} But ideally I'd use an actual icon. I've made a pretty through search o...
