Babylon English (Computers) system in which various types of media are connected by a hypertext program so that users can move between them in a non-linear manner (the World Wide Web is one such system) hEnglish - advanced version
Most Web navigation is done by clicking text-based links that open new pages in a Web browser . These links, which are often blue and underlined, are referred to as hypertext , since they allow the user to jump from page to page. Hypermedia is an extension of hypertext that allows images, movies, and Flash animations to be linked to other content. The most common type of hypermedia is an image link. Photos or graphics on the Web are often linked to other pages.
Hypermedia is used as a logical extension of the term hypertext in which graphics, audio, video, plain text and hyperlinks intertwine to create a generally non-linear medium of information. This contrasts with the broader term multimedia , which may be used to describe non-interactive linear presentations as well as hypermedia. It is also related to the field of electronic literature .
