Ability for users to record and playback sound during a quiz

Hi there,

I have been thinking a lot about the implementation of the following 2 ideas; I hope I am not the only one that has these wishes. It would be a game changer

1. To be able to use Google's Voice Search Engine in storyline! A user has to fill in the blank by speaking the word. Google's Voice Search is pretty good in recognizing words. I have found an Android application which used the Search Engine to display the spoken words as text. -this was a speech-to-sms program.

2. The ability for a user, learner, to listen first to a sound created in the course..and then the option to record his/her own voice so that the user can compare the pronunciation. -I have the Cambridge Advanced Learner's dictionary which has this option.

Can anyone tell me about the possibilities, or share some thoughts about this?

Online Language learning often goes without practicing the pronunciation...or when it does, then this website just only revolves completely around this skill.

Cheers

Wim

Hi there, Russell!

Storyline doesn't have a feature that allows learners to record their voice at this time, but I'll share your note with the right folks.

In the meantime, I've seen the community use other tools to achieve this. Check out these related discussions:
