Variable Playback Speed

Jun 17, 2016

We build our e-learning courses using Articulate Storyline.  Recently, a number of our students have asked us if we can provide functionality of increasing the speed of the delivery, the provision that they have in Lynda courses and youtube videos.  

So I was wondering there is a provision for the same in Articulate Storyline.

Hello Everyone!

I'm happy to share that we have released Storyline 360 version 72 (Build 3.72.29654.0).

Included in this release is a new feature where you can let learners explore at their own pace by choosing a course playback speed between 0.25x and 2x.

Now all you need to do is update Storyline 360 in your Articulate 360 desktop app on your computer. You'll find our step-by-step instructions here.

Please let us know if you have any questions by reaching out to our Support Engineers directly.

Have a great day!

I was so excited and just read this is only on the modern player. This is so disappointing.  My organization has its reasons and only uses the classic player.  Articulate has done this with accessibility features. I am afraid of you keep freezing out the classic player we are going to end up elsewhere.  I have mentioned this so many times each player needs to have the same supports or what is the point?

Great news! I was able to select and then simulate a click event on the div class based on the 'data-speed' attribute value. The code still works with the Playback speed not enabled on the player. Huge win for custom players!

//Select the element with data-speed
const element = document.querySelector('div.cs-listitem[data-speed="1.75"]');

// Simulate a click event on the element
const event = new Event('click', { bubbles: true });
