Narration not imported with the PowerPoint

Feb 06, 2016

I can't find a solution to this so hoping someone can help me. I created a PowerPoint, and recorded a narration on each slide (so yes the narration is embedded). I set the slide transitions with timings so that the slide show will automatically advance once the narration is ended. It works perfectly in PowerPoint.  When I imported the presentation into Storyline, the audio files didn't appear to be imported and also the timings were eliminated. What am I doing wrong?

I have updated PowerPoint, have the newest version of Storyline, and I am working on a desktop PC where all the files are saved to my hard drive (not on a network, not in separate folders, etc). To clarify, these are narrations I recorded on each slide - not a playlist or background music or anything like that. Everything I read seems to indicate that the narration should have been imported at the same time as the PowerPoint. And I'm using Windows 8, if that makes a difference.

Hi Zelda!  Thanks for reaching out, and I'm sorry that you're experiencing this issue.  Narration recorded in Powerpoint is not importing into Storyline at this time.  

While the narration is embedded in .wav format, please take a look at this article for information on how to extract the audio from Powerpoint and bring it into your Storyline project.
