Hi. I'm creating a course with the Word Search widget, and I wanted to display a button when user finishes correctly this interaction. Is it possible?
Not sure, but if you wish to continue to use the Word Search interaction make sure you don't update your edition of Adobe Captivate because the Word Search is now a deprecated feature starting with version 220.127.116.119.
The Word Search Interaction (widgets are not compatible with HTML5) is indeed now deprecated. As long as you are not updated, will give you some information (as can be found in one of my older posts) about that interaction.
It is a STATIC interaction, which means that you are not able to attach a score to it, that is only possible with interactive interactions (sorry about the terminology, I didn't create it). Moreover, contrary to other games (most are deprecated in 11.5.1) it doesn't even have an associated variable. Last infor: even the variables for other games did not report if the game was played correctly, only if had been played. Only one game had the score in the variable.
The look and feel of the widget in Captivate is like being back in time.
But the creation of the widget and search library might be too much.
Search for another alternative.
Luis, please do not talk about Actionscript anymore..... Captivate output needs to be HTML5, not SWF.
Thank you both Lilybiri and @Paul_Wilson
Do you think there's an alternative to create a Word Search interaction? Create manually, I mean.
The HTML5 Tracker didnt accuse this widget to be incompatible and I could also preview on HTML5 mode.
@LuisXIV , thank you!
You took the interaction from the Learning Interactions? The widgets still exist as well, and Word Search is solo amongst them. They are inserted with the Insert menu, Widget and are in a sufolder of the Gallery.
There used to be wonderful alternatives but as SWF widgets. All those developers have stopped developing widgets...
Have a nostalgic look at this old post, where I used that type of widgets:
Lot is possible with advanced actions, I do have several games on my blog. But for this type of interaction would also turn to JS. You have to reflect if it is worthwhile the effort because it will improve the outcome of learning?
I never have used the gaming interactions because they are functional only in one (simple) language which is .... not in Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian and more complicated ones.
