Module with lengthy slides?

Feb 21, 2012

First off I would like to make sure you know this module that I'm working on does not have any audio/animation involved with it.

I am going through a module and updating the information in it and have came across many slides in the PPT where there are just boring text on screen. The issue I am having is that with some of these slides, instead of the duration being 2 or 3 seconds per slide, the timer is going anywhere from 30-50 seconds. 

I have tried this procedure(see link below) but that didn't work for me:

I even went into the audio editor and tried deleting the extra length to the slides then saving but that didn't work either.

The lengthy slide duration shows up for me when I preview the slides and when publishing the slides.  I am using Office 2010 and the most current Articulate version.
