    • Translated abstract: Kinetic typography(KT) enables users to better convey emotions in text-based communication. In this research, we propose a sentence-level KT system that generates and assigns effects to the text input. We believe that our system improves the utilization of KT for broader applications. The system consists of 5 steps, and we focused on creating an algorithm for automated processing and layout of text, as in a sentence.

    • Translated abstract: Kinetic typography effectively allows texts, which lack non-verbal evidence, to show emotion through movement when used in communication. Previous researches focused on word-for-word modules, whereas this study focuses on the capability and usefulness of sentences. Specifically, for the study an automated algorithm was created where sentences are given animated effects with an appropriate layout. Tests were taken using samples created with the prototype. Results confirmed that sentence based kinetic typography is appropriate in conveying emotion.

    • Translated abstract: Kinetic typography can be used to reveal emotion successfully in a mediated communication environment. Previous kinetic typography research limits animated effects to word-for-word modules. To support various text-based communication there is a need for a sentence based system. Therefore, this study suggests a new algorithm and system where an animated effect for kinetic typography is created for sentences.
