Can I create closed captions on a project with only audio added, no video?

Hi all,

Just reading the release notes etc on the new features in the 29 August 2017 release, and noticed details about closed captions in Articulate Storyline 360.

I have a project with audio on each slide, with no video media. When i view Audio Tools Options, it advises there are no captions which is correct, but when i click the little "+" icon, it takes me straight to an explorer to find and upload captions.

2 questions:

1 - Can I create my own captions on a project with audio only, no video? If so, how?

2 - If i need to create closed caption files separately, are there any recommended third party web pages that offer this?

Thank you so much!

Hi Stevi and Design Team,

You should see the option to add your own captions to Audio files on the Audio Tools Options tab:

Let's double check that you're on the latest update:

  • Click the Help tab
  • Click About Storyline
  • Look for v3.8.13087.0 in the bottom-right corner

If you find you need to update your software, follow these steps
