Video with optional captions

Dec 05, 2016

I need a solution for adding optional captions to a video.

I would use objects positioned on the timeline, but the client doesn't want to use the storyline seek bar, they want to use the video controls available when you 'show video controls'.

Any ideas on a possible solution?

Hi Luke!  You might also consider using Replay where you could import your video file and add a Lower Third.  Replay allows you to publish your video projects to an .mp4 format which can then be used in any of your Articulate programs!

I wasn't sure which version of Storyline you're using, and the links above are for Replay 360.  You can also find more information for Replay 1 here, if you've already got that one!

It's not quite the same thing, but would adding a transcript instead of closed captions suffice?

The text won't appear in time with the video, but it will still allow the learner to read all the dialogue/narration.

The learner click a button to show a transcript, then close the transcript by clicking a close icon or anywhere else on screen outside the transcript box
