Closed Captions - Storyline to Rise

Jun 24, 2022

Hi Team,
I have created a screen recording using Storyline and inserted it as step-by-step slides. This means I now have multiple closed caption VTT files (CC's generated per slide) and when I put the video into a Rise block I can only add 1 VTT file.
Is there anyway around this (apart from uploading the video to You tube)?
Thanks for your help!

Hello Sharon and welcome to E-Learning Heroes! ✨

I'm happy to help!

Here is a step-by-step article with a video displaying how you can insert multiple VTT Files into your course. 

This additional article will provide you with some assistance as you add your screen recording within your Rise course: Rise 360: How to Add Closed Captioning to a Video.

If you are still having trouble, we'd be happy to take a look at your Storyline and Rise files and troubleshoot with you in this thread or privately in a support case. Whatever you are most comfortable with. 

Have a great day!

Hi Luciana,
Thank you for your reply!
It seems the video you provided above is how to load multiple VTT files, but in different languages. That won't work for my issue which hopefully I can explain below.

Please refer to my screen shot attached. In storyline I am editing my recording that I have split into scenes. Each scene has text to speech added. To export the vtt file, I have to do that for each scene which means I have multiple vtt files.

Is there a way to export the vtt files in storyline as one file? Or do you know of a way to merge them so I can add them to rise? Currently I'm having to upload the video to youtube and download a single vtt file from there. It's a frustrating, laborious task!

Thank you in advance for your help.
