1. A media article, comprising:

  • a non-transitory media member capable of providing a combined visual and audio activity to a user, the media member being executable and displayable by a separate playback display device, wherein the media member is separable as a unit from the playback display device, wherein the separate playback display device directly and automatically reads and executes the media member, automatically presenting to the user at the separate playback display device, without the use of a microprocessor, the following material pre-synchronized on the media member ;

    visual text material comprising a book or instructional work;

    an audio narration identical to the text material; and

    a plurality of successive non-text visual images, wherein the text material is inserted below or superimposed on the non-text visual images and then combined with the audio narration to produce a combined pre-synchronized work on the media member, wherein the text material, audio narration and non-text images are not separate files on the media member but are combined in the pre-synchronized work during manufacture of the media member, wherein the combined work is executed directly by the playback display device, showing to the user synchronized text material, non-text visual images and audio narration, without using a microprocessor to obtain the text material, audio narration and non-text images from separate files on the media member and then synchronizing them for display to the user, wherein the visual text material, the audio narration and the non-text visual images comprise the media member in such a manner that it is unitary, self-contained, non-interactive and unchangeable in content, wherein the relationship between the text material, the non-text visual images and the audio narration is pre-established for the entire media member and cannot be changed by the user during execution of the media member and display of the combined work to the user, and wherein a microprocessor is not required in the playback display device to execute the media member.
