I think scrolling text is fine, but I'm silly so I couldn't use the VCR buttons inituitively (I haven't watched videos in aeons!) and I think it would be better if you had a little slider for the speed, drag to the left to stop/pause it and drag to right to get it over with in half a second if people don't want to read the text.
This would also solve my problem of the half speed being way too slow and having to race to read the text on normal speed (and I've always read a lot of books and learnt to read at an early age so I think I can read quite fast - much faster than my dad...btw are you meant to be able to read all the credits at the end of films? Betcha they just skim it past to satisfy their contract...meep I'm rambling...)
If possible, I would be boring and like all of the text on screen at once and not moving [grin] but that may not be doable I know.
Hope that helps!
