Replay button does not work when the slide/layer is set to "Resume Saved State"

May 05, 2015

Hello all,

I have several slides in my course where I need to set the slide or layer as to "Resume Saved State" in order to make certain interactions happen. For example, in the attached sample file, I want to make sure that learners will click on all four buttons (Revenue Ledger, Expense Ledger, Balance Report, and General Ledger) before they can click on "Next". In order to achieve this, the slide needs to be set as "Resume Saved State". 

However, as I found in these discussion threads, when you set a slide or layer to "Resume Saved State", the Replay and Pause button will not work:

I do know that you could use the seek bar to manually drag to the beginning in order to restart. However, it is not the most intuitive way to do it. 

I also know that people said you could disable the replay button, but then you will have to disable the seek bar and the pause button, which is not a favorable solution. 

So my question is: if all I need to restart is actually only the audio on the slide/layer, is there anyway to disable the default articulate storyline seek bar and a replay button, and place a customized one that only controls the play and replay of the audio?

Hmm, I see. I don't think there is a way to 'disable' the seekbar as such, it's either there or not, and if it's there it is not disabled. 

So can you remove the seekbar altogether and just use a custom play/pause button for the audio? Does your client want the seekbar specifically, or just the ability to play/pause audio?
