The stories are edited for length and changed to make them more colloquial and suited to speech. News at Seven uses images and videos on sites like YouTube and Google Video.

Text-to-speech software then lets animated characters take on the role of news anchors, with pictures and videos shown on a screen behind them. But news may also be read out like this.

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity.
