Can you play audio when mouse hover over a text entry field in Storyline 360?

Mar 20, 2021

Hi all,

I'm using Storyline 360 and wanted to give audio clues when a learner hovers over a text entry field. My guess is as the text entry field is already an interaction it is not compatible with a hover... Is there a way around it? I've tried adding hotspots over the text entry field but that block it when brought back to front and inefficient if put in the background. Ideas anyone?

Hi, Geneviève, and welcome to E-Learning Heroes! ✨

I am sure some of our community's talented members can offer you ideas on how to accomplish what you are looking for. My suggestion, however, would be an alternative that might work for you.

I would add a little sound icon next to the text entry field, and the audio would play when hovering over this icon instead. This would give a visual clue to the learner on how to get additional information via audio.
