Moving Through Time-Based Media

This section contains graphics that represent movement through time-based media including spoken audio, music, images, animation, and video.

Several of these graphics use the concept of the play head, which defines the location in the media stream where the time-based media recommences its presentation once an action is carried out. For instance, Pause stops the media display temporarily without changing the position of the play head. On the other hand, Stop halts the presentation of the time-based media and moves the play head to the beginning of the media object.
