Restarting Audio File

Feb 19, 2018

I have inserted audio files into slides that I want to stop when the timeline gets to a certain spot and then re-start when user clicks a hotspot. I can stop the audio successfully. However, I can only restart from the beginning of the audio. I would rather not edit the audio files because they were pre-recorded. Ideas? Thanks in advance!

Yes, but you would need to add something else.

One thing you could do is to use a shape (invisible if you want) and its Selected state to trigger the audio. Set a condition of the trigger: play if state = selected, pause if state is not selected.

Or you could use the hotspot to set a T/F variable. Toggle the variable when the hotspot is clicked, then play or pause the audio depending on the value of the variable.
