I'm trying to create a modal for a screen that has an event video, the idea is to put the video script in a modal, but I'm struggle to figure out how.
Why not use slide video and add CC to it? Is that not a lot easier and comfortable for the learner?
Can't, it's an event video, so we can't use CC
That is why I proposed to switch to slide video....
Without getting into detail, that's not an option.
Event video is out of control of Captivate, plays independently. I have no idea how you could synchronize this with a script, you will need a lot of event listeners.
Doesn't need to sync, at all. The full script just needs to pop up in a modal, I just need to figure out how to do that.
Create a content master slide with a Text placeholder in the left half, leave the the right half free for the event video.
Or if it is a responsive project with Fluid Boxes, set up to Fluid boxes horizontally in a content master slide and eventually a placeholder for the text.
I would probably create a button that says "Show Script".
This button would have an action to show your SmartShape and an 'X' button.
In the SmartShape you can put the text.
I would include a small 'X' button as a way to close the script.
It would have an action to hide both the 'X' and the script.
This way the learner has a little control over whether they want the script to show or not.
As a another thought, you could hide a scrolling text window interaction (widget), place the script inside especially if it is a long script, and have a toggle button to turn it on or off using show/hide.
