Close button: want to have it restart voice on original slide

Aug 28, 2015

I have several layers in a slide. Each layer has a close button. When the close button is click the course goes back to the main slide. But the sound / voice on the main slide does not play (once it is complete the first time ). How would I get the voice to play again after clicking the close button?  See attached file. Let the first slide play through click the button then click the close button to go back to the beginning. I want the voice to start playing from the beginning when I click the close button. Is this possible through variables and if yes how?

Leslie I've tried to setup an additional trigger that jumps to the slide (from the slide layer) when the media completes but it ask me for an object. There is nothing in the object drop down. Thus, I can't make the trigger. Here are my steps -- Action: Jump to slide, Slide: select the slide, When: media completes, Object: unassigned. Any advice? What am I doing wrong? Please help.

I am trying to go from slide layer to main slide.

Walt, you still around? Leslie? Unfortunately, I'm still not able to get this to work. I am getting two sounds on one layer. But my slide is not transitioning to the main slide and not playing the sound of the first slide. What am I doing wrong. Please advice. I've included a screenshot for further detail. I must be ditzy or daft in the head. Thanks for your patience.

It looks to me like you have two copies of the Health Care Fundamentals audio, one on the base layer, and one on the Health Center layer. When you click the close button, they both play.


I deleted the one on the Health Center layer, and pointed the trigger to play the one on the base layer, and it seems to work now.
