HTML5 Audio and Slide Layers in Storyline -FAIL!
We have a custom interface with a Pause button on it. when the learner clicks this button it shows the slide Layer "pauseLayer". This layer is blank except for a Play button in the same location as the Pause button (to approximate a toggle button). When the user clicks the Play button it hides the slide Layer. We have the "pauseLayer" set to "Pause the main timeline playback".
In the Flash player it works great. Clicking "Pause" pauses the main timeline animation and audio playback. Clicking "Play" resumes from the point it stopped. Perfect!
IN HTML5 it is a failure. Clicking "Pause" stops the playback and audio but clicking "Play" resumes the animation ONLY. The audio never resumes.
THIS IS A CLIENT SHOW STOPPER!
Much of their user base is moving to HTML5 over Flash (iPads vs Desktops)
I have tried every possible combination of settings (main layer" reset to initial state on return" vs "resume from last point" vs "let computer decide" No difference. I have had NOTHING but trouble with HTML5 audio and slide layers on multiple projects. Its gettting old.
BTW iPad is running most current iOS so its not that. The same problem occurs on computer browsers running the story_html5.html version too.
