The text-to-speech function is dependant of the Notes tab... which cannot be updated dynamically. For instance, you cannot link a text variable to the Notes tab to add its content as the user moves along.

Side question: can a published Storyline even generate files? I'm asking this because the TtS file generation is done by the software, but once published, your course isn't linked to the software anymore.

I could see the user filling out a text box and have the course generate a TtS audio using the text written in that box, linked to the text variable that goes with it.

Hi Jean-Christophe,

I just wanted to jump in here and say that while you can use the text in the Notes tab to generate text-to-speech, you don't have to. You also have the option to type the text directly in the text-to-speech window.

However, you're right that the Notes tab can't be updated dynamically.

Hope that's helpful!
