slide layers and audio overlay - Storyline 2

Hello, I have a slide with 6 buttons. Each button has a layer and requires audio. How do I get the audio to stop/pause when another button is clicked?

I thought it would be a simple trigger for each button to show layer when user clicks button, then play media when user clicks. 

I tried adding the audio on the base layer and also the slide layer, still same problem.

Hoping someone can help.

thank you,

lisa

It's hard to tell, without seeing the .story file.

My guess is that you can put each audio on its layer, and set them to play when the timeline starts (which is default behavior, so you don't have to do anything). New layers default to hide other layers, so if you don't change that, each new click should represent a new layer, which should hide the visible layer, and stop its audio.

Hi Leslie, Thanks for your reply. I tried those suggestions and I'm still having trouble. I would think what I'm trying to do would be a pretty common task, but I can't find out how to do it. I've attached the slide for you. All I want to do is when the user clicks the button/picture, it bounces to the layer and plays that audio. If the user clicks another button/picture before the prior audio is complete, I'd like the audio to stop and play the current audio for the button/pic they just chose.

I'd like for all layers/answers to show at the end of the slide when the user is done reviewing all options.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Walt,  Thanks for your reply. I tried putting the audio on the layers as well as the base layer and the audio still overlays. I would think what I'm trying to do would be a pretty common task, but I can't find out how to do it. I've attached the slide for you. All I want to do is when the user clicks the button/picture, it bounces to the layer and plays that audio. If the user clicks another button/picture before the current audio is complete, I'd like that audio to stop and play the audio for the button/pic they just selected.

I'd like for all layers/answers to show at the end of the slide so I can't hide the layers when done, they all need to be shown at the end of the slide.

Thank you for your help.
