Abstract

Pictures can realize the impressions of texts for readers, especially for fairy tales. If we can present the fairy stories in the form of visual pictures, children will not only be more willing to concentrate their attentions on but also easily perceive the underlying messages. This work aims to present the fairy tales by transforming the texts to the visual form of pictures. To achieve such goal, we develop a system, VizStory, which consists of three steps. First, we investigate the narrative structure of the story to segment the whole story. Second, we select representative keywords for each segment. Third, through Web image search, we find suitable pictures to compose the visualization. Experimental results with human study show VizStory can present the narrative of stories with 75% accuracy.
