    first of all, it’s great to have audio-synchonization!
    it really adds a lot to the functionality of your site…

    but i can think of several ways to make it easier.

    for instance, how about just submitting a list of
    the times in the .mp3 at which transitions occur?

    or how about letting the person start the .mp3
    and the slideshow, and clicking “next page” at
    the appropriate times where they want a change?

    or how about scanning the .mp3 for a distinctive
    sound (e.g., a bell), which would cue a transition?

    finally, setting the appropriate number of points
    in the .mp3 (one less than the number of slides)
    at equally-spaced points that can then be adjusted
    would seem — at least to me — to be far easier
    than having to seek each end-point separately…

    again, it’s great to have this feature. i just think
    there are several ways it could be more friendly…
