Broken Triggers

Jul 11, 2013

I am having problems with triggers not properly activating sound files. I am making a course teaching employees about ATM machines, and I would like to make the course itself an ATM. I woudl like to make it so that when the user clicks on a shape or button, it triggers a sound file to play (a little beep that sounds like an ATM).

For some reason, half of the triggers work and the other half don't. All the triggers look the same, and all are linked to the same sound file. Even within the same slide some work and some don't.

I tried to attach the course here and it didn't work.

Any suggestions? I would really like to get this to work to make my course to feel as much like an ATM as possible.

Hi Nicole!

Hmm... The first thing that comes to mind is the order of the triggers for the sound files. Do you have any other triggers applied to the buttons for the ATM, or just the sounds at this point? Try moving the sound triggers up, if it's an option and see if that fixes it.

How large is the file? If it's not relatively small, it won't post here. If you could try importing that single slide into a new file, you could try sharing the .STORY file here again. Or, if you'd like, you can try sending the entire project over to us with a support case.
