  • Patent number: 8423891
    Abstract: A data processing system invokes presentation of a presentation element of a distributed presentation by a plurality of devices. The data processing system receives progress reports from the plurality of devices, where the progress reports indicate progress in presenting the presentation element. The data processing system determines whether a quorum threshold of presentation progress has been achieved based upon the progress reports. In response to determining that the quorum threshold of presentation of presentation progress has been achieved, the data processing system presents an indication that a spoken presentation associated with the presentation element can commence. The notification is presented prior to completion of presentation of the presentation element by at least one of the plurality of devices.
