Include the Volume button on customer player for selected slides

Hi community!

One of the features I really like in Storyline is the ability to select a custom player for selected slides. You can then show or hide player items such as the seekbar for the selected slide. Unfortunately, it doesn't allow you show or hide the volume button. The volume button provides a visual cue about whether or not a slide contains audio. It would be great if Articulate could include it in this feature. In the meantime, does anyone know of a workaround?

Hi Selina,

As you noted, that's not one of the options available for the "custom player" settings on an individual slide. You're welcome to share your thoughts here in the form of a feature request if you'd like to see that in a future update/version. 

I hope the community is able to share any other ideas or workarounds they've implemented with you here.

This post is quite old. Is there any update on this?

I have a Storyline 360 file with many slides. Only one of the slides has a video with audio and closed captioning. As a result, I have to turn on the volume and cc buttons in the project player and then set customer players for every single slide that isn't the video slide.

I also cannot get rid of the volume button on the slides without the video. By deselecting the seekbar in the custom player for all but one slide, the CC button disappears from those slides, but the volume button remains.
