NEW IN RISE 360: Closed Captioning

We’ve just released a powerful new feature in Rise 360: closed captioning. Now you can upload closed caption files to videos to make your content more accessible. 

It’s easy to add closed captions to your Rise 360 courses. Just click Edit and select Manage captions in any block that showcases a video. Select the language, and then add your file. You can add as many languages as you like.

We hope you love this helpful new feature!

Upon further investigation, it looks like I should be able to import the CC that Storyline has already generated for the text-to-speech audio track and use it for CC for the recorded audio. I discovered the .vtt files in the Media Library. Now all I need to do is figure out where these files are stored so I can point to them and add them as described here:

I can right click the text-to-speech audio and click Accessibility to identify the Closed Caption .vtt file. I can then right click the new audio clip I've recorded, click Accessibility, and click Import Captions to select the file. The trouble is I don't know where the .vtt files are stored so I can point to it. 

Then I assume I simply enable the CC button in the player and I have CC for the audio just like I need. 

Please advise.

Hi, Raising Voices! It sounds like you could use a Storyline Block to insert audio with closed captions in your course. 

First, you can replace the text-to-speech audio with your own audio. In Storyline 360, click Audio tools > Options > Replace Audio > Audio from file. Now your audio file has closed captions.

Then, export this slide to Review 360 to insert it in Rise as a Storyline block. Please let me know if that would work for you!
