One closed caption button that triggers all slides

Jul 07, 2014

I've looked at this post to find out how to use closed captioning. I don't like the transcript option because a transcript is not the same as captions. 

I also don't like the fact that a closed caption button is created for each slide. This means that the person needs to click the button everytime you arrive on a new slide.

Adobe Captivate integrated the closed caption button in the player, so you could turn it on and off (and the audio on and off) for the whole course.

Is there a similar workaround for Articulate Storyline?

Hi Helga and welcome to Heroes!

I didn't see a post linked here - but I assume you're referring to the options in this article. Those are the current methods that our team has shared - but there may be other community methods that you may want to look into, such as this thread.

Also, if you'd like to see a true closed captioning feature that may be something you want to share with our product development team in the form of a feature request here.

Hi Ashley,

Thanks for your response. Yes, I realised I forgot to paste the link but couldn't edit my original post.

I was referring to the first video in the first link you provided.

Good to know that there are ways to achieve what I want. I will look into them.

Thanks for the tips. Much appreciated.
