Adobe Presenter Audio to Storyline

I have an Adobe Presenter file that I would much rather have in Storyline. The challenge is that there are 88 audio files. Adobe labels them randomly (the order in which they are numbered does NOT match slide order) and I can't tell from the individual files in the zip folder which file goes with which slide. I'm hoping someone here has found a solution to this. Any suggestions or tips? I tried Google and couldn't find anywhere that would tell me how to match a random file name (ex: 6343948.mp3) with a slide.  Thanks in advance!

It is Adobe. I figured that’s the answer because typically the great Google will find something to answer my questions. ☺ The current options are to listen to every slide and attempt to match or have someone transcribe and re-record.

Hi Mary Kate,

I can't comment on Adobe Presenter as I don't use that product but I just did a quick test by publishing a Storyline project. After publishing finished, I opened the published folder in Windows Explorer. I sorted the file names by date and time, oldest to most recent. As expected, the top mp3 file in the list belongs to the first slide, the next mp3 belongs to Slide 2, and so on.

I don't know what might happen if I drag the slides around into a different order or re-arrange the scenes in Story view (via cut and paste), but for this little test case (a 40-slide project), the mp3s were listed in Windows Explorer in slide order, not withstanding their cryptic file names.

Not sure if that helps at all and, again, I don't know if that would work in Adobe's published output, but perhaps something that will help a bit.

Thanks, Steve. It doesn’t work but that gave me a thought that could help my work around. I added the “length” column to windows explorer and sorted that way. Matching slide lengths will be much easier than trying to listen and figure it out! So thanks! Sometimes all I need is a little collaboration to give me more ideas.
