Hi Alyssa.

Thanks for your reply. I've moved forward: the problem is that in some fields you need to press Enter to create the text entry field, but in our product this will submit the form. Using Storyline 3 in Chrome for web-based functionality that I'm recording as a simulation. Have fiddled for hours but think I'll just have to work round it.

Hi Liam,

Sorry that you've run into an issue with this as well.

Google Chrome communicates very little information to the Windows Accessibility API, which is how Articulate Storyline collects information for screen recordings. In addition to missing caption details, Google Chrome may even omit some steps from your screen recordings.

For the best results, use Internet Explorer to record your screencast. It provides the richest data set. (Firefox also works well.)

Hi there, Cameo. It sounds like you're adding your screen recording as a Test mode with step-by-step slides. If you have a slide that you can use for the text entry interaction, click the Insert tab at the top, and choose Convert to Freeform. It will let you add a text entry field and score their reply.

Let us know if you need more targeted help!

In try mode, am I able to convert a hot spot slide to a free form slide? When will there be an update to allow better capture on Google Chrome? Most companies use Chrome now and a lot of applications are only exclusively on Chrome. It seems like this has been enough of an issue by now that something would have been done about it.

Hi Cameo,

Convert to Freeform is used to transform any slide into an assessment slide. Using a screen recording in "Try Mode" is a slide already converted to freeform. 

I've passed your comments along! If I hear of any updates to the communication of Windows Accessibility API, I'll let you know in this discussion.
