Unable to import storyline2 files in captivate 5 for making audio

Hi,

Earlier we used Articulate Studio Professional 9 and 13  for our eLearning project and for making audio we used Adobe captivate 5 and 6 . Directly will import ppt(presenter) files to captivate and created audio files, then will imported in articulate presenter.  But now we moved to Storyline2 for creating eLearning projects. 

1.  For making audio, I'm unable to import storyline files to Captivate 5. How to make audio for storyline projects. any idea...??? Kindly suggest me. which version of captivate will support these story files for creating audio...or any other software should I use to create audio?

2. We will get the input in ppt format, there more animations and .gif images are there, while importing ppt to storyline2, the images are not importing properly. Half of the images only visible in storyline. that animations also not supported properly in storyline2. .gif images are appearing like single image (means without animation it is appearing). So, we have to redraw the images and animations again. Kindly suggest me how to fix this issue..

Thanks,

Meera.C

Hi All,

Thanks for all your replies. Actually I'm not going to import manual voice. I'm going to import computer voice. for that, any other suggestion is there...could you please let me know.

Previously I used to convert "text to speech" through captivate. same like any other possibilities are there...?

Thanks,

I use Captivate 5 Speech management options.

1. Start Captivate and go to Speech Management

2. Select a voice, type/paste your text.

3. Generate Audio

4. Export the audio from Captivate to a folder - go to the Library, select the audio file, right click and export..

5. Start Storyline and open your project.

6. Insert the generated audio file into the project.

This works quite well, but we do not do it often because the voices are not very natural.. Hope this answer the question, unless I misunderstood it.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your reply Tim. I'm asking for,  Earlier we used Articulate Studio Professional 9 and 13  for our eLearning project and for making audio we used Adobe captivate 5 and 6 .

Can we import story files to Captivate directly to making text to speech conversion. instead of copy/paste each slide notes to captivate, will import all slides to captivate same like ppt files.?

Hi Meera,

I don't know of a way to import Storyline into Captivate, as it's not based on a standard file format like Powerpoint. Will you be publishing the final set up in Storyline or Captivate? If you'll be publishing in Storyline I'd look at creating the audio in Storyline or another tool on your system that can publish to a standard audio format such as mp3 and you can insert into Storyline. 

If you're needing to use Captivate, I'll defer to the community expertise as it's not one of our products and therefore I cannot offer support for it.
