Abstract: Multimedia is one of the less studied characteristics, probably because of the less-developed level of the digital language. Along with hypertext and interactivity, it is one of the characteristics that defines the digital edition. Those characteristics have been always studied from the point of view of production, although not so much from the point of view of reception. How do users read a digital text? The reader鈥檚 participation, reading depth, different trailblazing, the relation user-interface and the conception of multimedia text as a module of a database introduce major changes in the reception of the text, which can and must be studied.
Translated abstract: La multimedialidad es una de las caracter铆sticas menos estudiadas, tal vez por menos desarrolladas, del nuevo lenguaje digital. Junto con el hipertexto y la interactividad, constituye una de las caracter铆sticas que definen el discurso digital. Estas caracter铆sticas siempre se han estudiado desde el punto de vista de la producci贸n, no tanto desde el punto de vista de la recepci贸n. 驴C贸mo leen los usuarios un texto digital? La participaci贸n del lector, la profundidad de la lectura, los distintos recorridos y prop贸sitos por la superficie y los niveles m谩s profundos del texto, la relaci贸n del usuario con la interfaz y la concepci贸n del texto multimedia como m贸dulo en una base de datos introducen cambios sustanciales en la recepci贸n del texto que pueden y deben ser estudiados.
