(CP 5.5) I have pages with separate text items that I want to synchronize with audio. I want users to advance to the next page with a click at their own pace. Here's my dilemma:
Hello and welcome to the forum,
Do I understand it well: you want to have different Text Captions with audio (you can attach the audio to the text captions) but after each text caption you want the user to click to go to the next one? Could imagine different possibilities to achieve that, but first please confirm if I understand you correctly,
Thanks for your quick response. No, I considered using different text captions with specific audio attached to each, and that remains my last option, but the narration is both smooth and lengthy in one piece, and I want to preserve that continuity rather than parsing audio strings in an audio editor to fit each text item.
My goal is to have each text item appear very shortly after that topic is spoken in the continuous narration, and then to allow the user to study the whole screen at their leisure before clicking to move on to the next page. I can set the timing of text items easily in the audio timeline, but then the screen display length is governed by time, not the user action.
So you only want to pause the slide after all audio is over and text captions displayed? Just add a button (or a click box) to the slide and be sure to have its pausing point after the appearance of the last text caption and after the end of the audio clip. Choice is yours: a button will be visible to the user, sometimes I add a click box covering up all of the slide and instruct the user to click on the slide when ready,
