Typewriter effect

b_stb Community Member - Trial User Qubie ✭
edited June 23 in Survey Platform


I am carrying out a study in which I wish to make several people's speeches appear in writing. 

For example: Math: "I like apples".

My problem is that I would like "I like apples" to appear letter by letter on the screen and not all at once.

So I would like to create a typewriter effect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Paste the below code in the HTML view of the question

    <div id="demo">&nbsp;</demo>

    Paste the below code in the onReady function of the javascript:

    	function typeWriter() {
          if (i < txt.length) {
             document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML += txt.charAt(i);
             setTimeout(typeWriter, speed);
    	var i = 0;
      var speed = 100;
    	var txt = "Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.";
