Record audio in SL2 after Flash goes away?

Apr 15, 2020

A couple members of our team use Storyline 2 to record audio when we want a variety of voices in a course (e.g. when simulating a conversation). Since they do not develop courses, they do not plan to upgrade to SL3. Will audio recording/editing still work in SL2 after Flash goes away? Does SL2 audio recording/editing/saving/importing/exporting have any Flash dependencies?

Hi Art,

Thank you for reaching out! 

Since Storyline 2 relies on Flash to operate, Microsoft won't allow the Flash Player to operate on supported versions of Windows. In case this helps, we have a great resource that explains the details of what to expect here:

Please let us know if you have any questions!

Yes, I read that article, as well as the system requirements for SL2. So, I understand that overall, SL2 requires Flash, probably for previewing and other "output/visual" functions. But, specifically, after Flash goes away, can SL2 still be used to simply record audio? Sorry if I missed that detail somewhere, but that is all a couple of my colleagues need to do. Then, those of us who have SL3 will import that audio into the course we are developing and continue from there. Or, maybe I am missing the main point - will SL2 not even open up and work at all once Flash goes away?
