Proposed by openInvent.club for ANSI standardization and ALT +XXX ASCII CODE. In openInvent Digest Vol. 1 at tiny.cc/openInvent1.

openInvent also wrote that a method for simultaneous text ( text which is super Imposed onto one another) will be a good way to denote two actors/characters speaking at the same time.

Simultaneous Text is probably most useful in notation of duet lyrics.
