I have a multiple choice question. There is audio that essentially reads what is written on the screen. It is a few sentences. Even if the learner quickly answers the question and clicks Submit, s/he has to wait until the audio finishes before the it advances to the next slide.
Is there any way for the slide to automatically advance when hitting Submit, even if the audio is playing? I don't want the audio to carry over to the next slide.

Don't add the audio to the slide. Add it to an object that is on the slide (e.g. a transparent text caption without any text or a highlight box set to 0 Alpha to make it invisible to the user.). Set your quiz question to only 3 seconds duration. Set the On Success and On Last Attempt actons to hide the object with the audio. That way as soon as the user clicks again after clicking the Submit button to evaluate the question the action will hide the caption and cut off the audio so that it does not continue when viewing the next slide.
You can also do this on more recent versions of Captivate by setting the On Enter Slide action to Play Audio, and the ON Sucess and On Last Attempt actions to Stop Triggered Audio.
Thanks very much for your reply.
1. I created a smart object for each of the 3 multiple choice questions (can't edit fill and stroke for text boxes).
2. I put a smart object onto each multiple choice question slide.
3. I dragged the respective mp3 from the Library and then dropped it onto the smart object. There was a pop up asking if I wanted to increase the timeline to align with the length of the audio. I chose 'yes.'
Hi Rod, is it possible to use some version of your suggested response here to stop audio on a quiz slide once submit is selected so that custom feedback audio is triggered?
Please, are you still on CP7? If not, I would suggest to start a new thread. This one is 5 years old.
