Let the learner record their answer

How about letting the learner record the answer in their own voices?

Started as an experiment. As a surprise, I also:

1. Got a way to jump back from external link to Storyline

2. Push values fro HTML to storyline.

Got the working example.

Can be a part of subjective interactivity (For example, language classes), right?

I'll post the source files shortly.

Hi Kawstov,

I'm very interested in this and can imagine a number of uses. My first reaction was how it could potentially be used for ESOL (English for Speakers of a Second Language) learning: Learners comparing correct pronunciation to their own pronunciation.

I just tested it at the link you gave with my Windows 7 laptop and onboard microphone...in a hurry so this was just a quick test.

There was much more background noise than I typically experience w/my onboard mic. Looking forward to having some time in a few days to try it with a USB mic.

How do I get to see what happens when clicking on Continue? Sorry if I'm missing something!

Looking forward to seeing how you did this. I posted a simple example of how to do this a while ago. I'll dig up mine when I am next back at my computer just to give you another option.

Here is a link to my example.

All I did was embed this widget from vocaroo.  Super easy.

Nice share Nancy! I did test vocaroo. However since ours is a commercial course, and I wanted to reduce third party dependency.

So I made an HTML that can be uploaded on our platform itself. Of course the code is open source.

Hi Rebecca,

Agreed about the noise, I enable noise cancellation in mine, and it was bearable

The continue button passes a value back to storyline. Detecting the variable change, the player moves to next layer/ screen.

Very cool Kawstov. I am looking forward to dissecting your solution.

Hi Kawstov,

Unfortunately you have to subscribe after you reply each time - it's the unfortunate downside of keeping spam out of the forums. You'll see the subscribe to replies at the top of each thread - and this is something our team is working on fixing for a future version of the Heroes forum.  


Sure Ashley!

Thanks for updating.

Hi Kawstov and Nancy,

I just had an opportunity to record my audio with the Samson Condenser mic I use for  recordings with both of your tools. Tx so much for sharing. In both cases there was a bit of a hum, slightly louder with your tool, Kawstov. Otherwise, I think it's pretty cool.

Nancy, did you implement this in a course? If so, can you share more about how you used it?

Thanks again to both of you.
