Custom Button for Muting and Unmuting Audio?
I'm not even sure if this is doable, but I figured I'd reach out to the community and Articulate to see if it is. It's a rather complicated setup with many needs.
I have a course with audio and animated text that comes in when the narrator speaks each specific part on the screen. There are some deaf employees at my company that need to view the training without audio. So, simple enough, I have created a mute/unmute button so anyone can toggle the audio ON or OFF.
So when a user clicks the mute button, I have all the text come in automatically and the next button becomes available. (It's locked until the timeline reaches the end if audio is on.)
So what the course needs to do is that if you mute the course, it needs to stay muted throughout and the icon indicating that the course is muted needs to stay RED throughout, and if selected again, will unmute the audio and the icon should change to GREEN. The most issues I'm encountering are that the icon that indicates what state the audio is in doesn't seem to want to change when you navigate through the course.
Has anyone dealt with this before? I know it's a ludicrous amount of nonsense to add in a course, but I'm just trying to find a workaround so the button will function and display the right state when the audio is toggled. Input is most graciously appreciated.
