Hi there,

I have several buttons on a slide that each play different audio when clicked.

Is there any way I can add closed captions for each of these separately?

Thanks,

Mandy

If your REAL requirement here is to allow the learner to play a number of different audio clips with accompanying text transcript of the voiceover then there's a far easier method to achieve that resul.

Just add rollover captions and add the audio clips to the caption part of the object.  Add the transcript of the audio clip as the text in the caption.  Then when the learner places their mouse over the rollover hit area, the caption will appear, the audio clip will play, and the learner can view the transcript in the caption.  As soon as they move their mouse off the hit area the clip will stop playing.

Thanks Rod, yes you are right it is far quicker method.

The idea with using CC was it being optional for users, those who might have trouble keeping up with the audio.

But it is not a huge downside if the transcript shows for all users, so I will use your solution.

Thanks

Is there a way to do this for hotspots on a virtual reality project with 360 images? For example, I have a virtual reality project and each slide has a 360 image with various hotspots what trigger an audio recording when clicked. How would I add closed captioning for each audio at each hotspot?
