Publishing Storyline with the progress bar and closed captions

Hello,

We are using Rise for our overall course package. Within this, we have various storyline blocks.

Our most commented feedback from our clients is that we don't have a timeline bar to allow people to redo a few seconds. As most of our videos in Storyline are split over multiple slides we can't do this. 

We actually have 2 problems, and I have added potential solutions

 

1. Publishing to video. We can use this when we have an info only storyline scene (e.g. no interaction) BUT the video publishing options does not generate the Closed Captions. Can you update storyline to add the ability to chose if we wish to generate the closed captions as one large file when we publish to video?

 

2. Publishing to review/CD etc. We can use this when we have interactive storyline scenes. BUT we can't enable the timeline as the video is split over multiple slides. Can you update storyline to give us the option to publish with slide timelines, or as a scene timeline?

 

Regards,

Fiona

Hi Fiona,

Thanks for reaching out, and I"m happy to dig into these questions:

Can you update Storyline to add the ability to chose if we wish to generate the closed captions as one large file when we publish to video?

At this time, closed captions won't be included when you publish Storyline 360 content to a single video file. However, you're not the first to bring this up, and we are tracking these requests. I'll be sure to add you to the links of folks on the report and jump back in here when there's any news!

Can you update Storyline to give us the option to publish with slide timelines, or as a scene timeline?

I'm not sure I fully understand this question, but it seems like you'd only like to enable the seekbar for certain slides, correct? While you can adjust the Player Properties on a global setting, you can also edit the Slide Properties to customize specific slides with the seekbar.

I hope this helps, but let me know if you were referring to something else!

Hello,

What I mean is; sometimes we create training material that is spread across a few slides, and then publish it as a scene. Some of the learners want to jump back the content to see previous information. 

Having each slide have its own timeline means they can't jump back to a previous slide and having the menu available or the prev/next buttons will confuse the learners.

This is why I was asking for a scene timeline instead of individual slides.

Hi Fiona!

Thank you so much for adding additional details! I understand how having a scene timeline would be beneficial to your learners rather than the default timeline, which is set up for each individual slide.

I'm going to share this with my team and will update you in this discussion! You can see what we are currently working on by visiting the feature roadmap.
