Like Megan, I'd like to publish screen prints, notes and editable screen captions to a Word document. My company has a Legal review that we require sign-off from after we create our course. (In their opinion -- not mine -- a storyboard is not enough.) Is there a way to do this? There must be a document object model for Storyline that we can access to extract captions??

thanks,

Peter

Hi Peter,

The Publish to Word would capture the screen and accompanying notes but doesn't allow for editing of what's on the screen. Perhaps using that in conjunction with an export of the closed captions (from translation so that they're easily editable) would work? 

Also, using Review 360 is a great option to share with anyone who needs to sign off on the content and provide suggested edits on a slide by slide basis.

Hi Ashley,

Thanks for your response. My apologies about the long response . . . I'm new to the forums, and I thought I was sending you a private reply to the business case email I submitted yesterday separately from my forum post here. I've edited my response so that it's appropriate for the forum.

For the purposes of this forum, what I am looking for is a workaround to include slide captions in the "print to Word" output document. I'm willing to use JavaScript to somehow access the caption objects or a Word macro to transfer the captions from a translation export into the course document.

Ashley suggested 360 as a review alternative, and unfortunately we can't afford the license at this time. Also, some of our internal stakeholders require us to produce a final paper review copy for their records  after our course design is complete. At this point, an online review record, while wonderful in our team's minds is not yet acceptable for them.

If anyone has some workaround ideas for this Word output situation, I'd be grateful for some help!

Thanks,

Hi Peter,

First, I wanted to let you know that your email signature came through when you replied via email. You can remove that if you would like by clicking Edit beneath your response. Here’s a quick Peek video if you need help.

I wasn't sure if you were using Storyline 3 or Articulate 360 but figured it was worth pointing out how Review 360 could help. I'm sorry it's not an option for you right now, and if there’s anything we can do to help you make the case for Articulate 360, let us know. We’re happy to help.

Closed captions are relatively new for us, so I'm happy to pass along the idea about linking that text into the Word publish. Javascript isn't something I'm trained in, as our team can't offer support on it, so I'll leave that to folks here in the community to weigh in on!
