Yay closed captioning!

I'm really excited about the new CC features in Storyline 360! Makes my job a lot easier. I watched the tutorial video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDmg8SrfHSc) on how to use them, and that's great. My question is about those srt files. How are those generated and created? I haven't worked with those before.

Any advice/direction is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Will,

I'm not sure I understand - you'd like to just use the CC button to add additional text to your slides, but not associated it with any videos or audio? The captions ability is supported for audio and video files within Storyline, so you could look at importing an audio file that just had no sound and adding captions to that? 

It's a brand new feature for us, so it'll be really interesting to see what the community does with it! I'm always impressed by their ingenuity.

Thank you for this thread. I just want to make sure I understand what Phil is suggesting: attach the audio to some video, doesn't matter what, create a video file, upload to YouTube to create the SRT file.  Did I get it? 

I have used YouTube to create video captions and agree that it is decent. 

I have searched for a product that will generate something like what YouTube does but for just audio. No luck so far.
