PowerPoint import audio fubar

My co-worker created a pptx and imported the audio into each slide. Then I imported the PowerPoint into Storyline. Unfortunately, Storyline messed up the audio. In some cases the slides had no audio. In other cases, the slides had the wrong audio. This is a workflow we would like to use. Is there a way to make sure the audio doesn’t get messed up?

 

After searching forum posts, I ran Windows Update, but that didn’t help. Any suggestions? Should I submit a ticket on this?

The instructions for verifying the .NET Framework say "Ensure that the check box for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 is selected, and click the OK button." I'm unsure exactly what should be selected. Here's the prompt:

Is it correct the way it is, or should either or both of "Windows Communication Foundation" boxes also be checked?

Hi, I'm interested in getting Storyline, but I would need clients to add audio to PPT & would then have to import the files to Storyline. I have seen several posts where people have had trouble getting their audio to transfer seamlessly from ppt into Storyline. I'm wondering if this is a supported feature of the product and why there seem to be issues with it. Has this been fixed in any recent version updates? Any information about this topic would be very helpful.

Thanks!

Hi Beth, and welcome to the Heroes Community.

I do not know the outcome of this thread, however, as you are getting them to add audio to .ppt, anyway, why not just import .ppt to SL, then bring the audio separately?

OK - you need to do an extra step, but that works so may be the best workflow.

Hope that helps.

Once again a warm welcome.

Bruce
