2016-15 Automating R Demonstration Videos

This document describes a proof-of-concept for producing R demonstration videos in a fully-automated manner. The “script” for the video consists of a text file containing code chunks paired with text commentary. The video is produced by running the code while recording a screen capture, using text-to-speech software to record audio of the commentary, then combining video and audio with appropriate timings and pauses.
