Any suggestions on the best way to do it?

Text to Speech will always be bit 'robotic'. Personally I prefer to record my voice.

The workflow for TTS (one possibility) which I use:

  • Click the TTS indicator next to each sentence (or on top - see screenshot red ellipse).

  • Choose the wanted voice, you can choose a different voice for each sentence

Terminology issues. Are you talking about a video inserted in a Captivate project or about an interactive cptx file?

Right. I have an interactive eLearning module/.cptx file and I want to add human voice/audio to each slide. What is the best way to go about?

  • Click the button 'Generate Audio' at the bottom
  • Audio clip will be created and added as slide audio under the slide timeline. The slide  duration will be increased to fit the audio. That clip will also appear in the project Library.
  • I recommend to move the audio timeline (under the slide timeline) to leave a slight gap before and after the audio timeline.
