Operating the Poem Teller

Hints will close or open this control panel. Ideas will display a list of poems to choose from.

Text shows (or hides) a box for your poem. Clear will clear the box.

Use Tell to tell the text (whatever it takes).

This practice helps cultivate patience with deliberate latency.

Verse lines and stanzas are inferred from line breaks in the input text box.

Indents on lines are calculated from white space.

When (as) told, a poem will be paused with certain punctuation, adjusted below. Intervals are set to 360ms, so to pause for about a second, use 3.
