The "ppta" file - How do I extract audio data?
OK starting from the assumption that I'm an idiot and may have created a "known problem," I could really use some guidance. Here's the story:
I created and published a a course module. Fine & dandy.
Then I updated the PowerPoint (PPTX) - but ... wait for it ... I re-named it.
Then I realized the possible error of my ways and re-re-named it back to the original that has the same name as the ppta file.
BUT - apparently my act of re-re-naming contrition did not appease the Articulate gods (the uppercase ones are on THIS forum, of course).
My PowerPoint file had apparently dis-associated itself from the original ppta file (citing "irreconcilable differences"). So when I went to sync animations and check the recorded audio ... I get nothin' - nada.
Which brings me here to the Articulate Oracle (eLearning Heroes) in search of a miracle ...
1. Is there a way to re-associate my PPTX and ppta files?
2. If not, is there any way to extract the audio data from the original ppta file?
I'm open to any wise, experienced or harebrained ideas at this point... or is this a "DYS" (Dude, You're Screwed) error?
