Best practices to create closed captioning when you have audio on each slide?

Apr 07, 2017

I've looked at the documentation for 360's new CC functionality and have gone through the process of creating a PPT file, exporting a video, uploading it to YouTube to create closed captions, and downloading that file - then importing it into Storyline 360.

All to determine that I would have to do this for EACH slide that has audio in order for it to work.

Is this right? Has anyone found a more efficient way to create CC when you have audio on each slide, using 360's new CC capabilities?

Hi Janet, 

It sounds like your understanding is correct - you'll need a separate CC file for each video or audio track (slide) and then insert those into Storyline. If you had exported the entire Powerpoint file as a single video, that should create one CC file, but all of that would then exist on one slide in Storyline. 

I haven't seen any shorthands to the process, but the CC are so new still! I hope that others in the community are able to chime in here and share some other ideas with you.
