Controlling the ability to advance slides

Hi! I am trying to keep my slides from being able to advance until the audio track has played and am stuck.

I created a variable for each slide (named the slide, then put 'true/false' for type and 'false' for the value, then created a trigger saying 'Jump to next slide when the user clicks the next button if [name of variable] is equal to True'.

The slides aren't advancing at all.

However, my first slide works - it has an object variable and the others don't. I have no idea how I created the object trigger (set for Sound 1: Set [name of slide] equal to true When the media completes)...I am pretty sure I did the same thing for every slide when I created the variables and triggers so I don't know why this one is different or how to recreate it for the other slides.

If someone could explain how to do this I would be very appreciative!

Thank you!

Hi Jen, so I assume that you want the slides to advance automatically but only when the audio finishes playing - is that Correct?

Unless I am missing something, you should not need variables for this at all.

All you have to do is place the audio on the timeline and then set the timeline so that it is the same length as the audio. (do this by dragging the timeline to that it matches the length of the audio track)

Create a slide trigger that says jump to next slide when the timeline ends. I think that should do it.

Oh and just for future reference, I don't think the media trigger works for audio - just video.
