Oh I am sorry.     MM= MatchMaker    mini-MM  is a portion of the MatchMaker function that would exist on the local device.

After awhile the MM (or a local mini-MM in the computer) notices this and asks if you would like (prefer) to turn  up the volume when the background gets loud (using the settings you have been using).   If you say yes - this is added to the preferences.

We envision that the learner will also be able to specify preferences through a wizard and directly in context of the content (i.e. a video clip may indicate alternatives or customizations in some way).
