Audio drops from slides inconsistently in Storyline 360 Feb & March 2020
I've been experiencing inconsistent audio dropping issues in February & March 2020. In the past, audio in my courses always sounded perfect. I'm recording audio in Audacity using the recommended format for Storyline. I'm inserting the audio into Storyline 360 with the most current update.
I've experimented by using different microphones, different versions of Audacity and different laptops. Every combination creates inconsistent results. Sometimes the recorded audio is perfect. Sometimes the audio drops in a different place in the recording (but always at the end of the recorded slide.)
I've experimented by publishing the course to different environments (my LMS and Articulate Review.) Audio in the same course file behaves differently when I publish the course to a different environment.
The attached "ISSUE Audio in online courses March 2020" shows the inconsistent results of my experiments. The rows show 4 different slides published to different environments and the columns show different combinations of microphones, laptops and versions of Audacity software.
I attached the course file.
I don't think the issue is my microphone, laptop, recording software or audio files. Hoping someone can help me figure out if my Storyline software is causing the inconsistent audio issue or, if it's something in my work environment that's causing the audio to drop at the end of my slides.
