video Closed Captioning via webvtt or other external file

I searched the forum for the string "webvtt" and got exactly one result; 2 years old.

When you import a video into a slide in Storyline, can Storyline get and display the closed captions from a webvtt file?

Is it still the case that the only way to implement closed captioning for a video in Storyline is to manually enter and set the time for every individual text chunk such as the update-variable method?

Hi David, 

I checked with a few members of our team, and they said it's not something that Storyline could parse out - but that it may work if you were able to use it as a web object. Since it's not something we're currently set up to support, that's just an idea that they had - so perhaps worth giving it a try to see how it works for you?
