Anyone know how to translate this? It's in a list of elements of a multimedia programme (sounds, characters, etc).

reactive texts
Explanation:
FIELD: REACTIVE MULTIMEDIA
Reactive multimedia playout management available at the user's workstation enables the adaptation to changing system loads.

"Vortex display technology enhances the perception of the word within the visual cortex of the brain--a qualitative difference," said Cliff High, chief executive officer of Tenax. "For instance, our reactive text and punctuation can give you an extra three words hang time on each comma and period. Or you can tell the Vortex reader to change every occurrence of 'Fred' to green when the regular display is yellow, or to ignore telephone numbers."

hypermedia


Explanation:
hypertexte - n.m. - hypertext - Ensemble de documents textes liés selon une structure complexe non linéaire, qui permet une navigation dans n'importe quel ordre parmi les documents. Les encyclopédies électroniques sont un bon exemple d'hypertexte, tout comme les aides en ligne. Les liens associés à des mots ou à des phrases permettent d'accéder immédiatement aux sujets apparentés. Ce terme a été forgé en 1965 par Ted Nelson. Le terme hypermédia, introduit plus récemment, est presque synonyme, mais insiste plus sur le côté non textuel, comme les animations, les sons et la vidéo.

Hypermédia - n.m. - hypermedia - Extension de la notion d'hypertexte à l'ensemble des médias affichables sur un ordinateur. On détermine ainsi des zones sensibles dans des graphiques qui établiront des liens au même titre que les liens hypertextes dans des documents HTML.

interactive text OR hypertext


Explanation:
Only a guess, but it sounds like what they mean --- and I've come across réactif meaning interactive in several other contexts. Hypertexxt is perhaps more the buzzword, but could be dodgy if it didn't quite fit the context.
