Here is my problem.
-the short version-
Say I have a slides with links to other slides in a
simulation. I'd like to be able to link back to the originating
slide where it left off. Would that be possible in Captivate 3?
-the long version-
I have a slide that contains a rather lengthy scripted piece
of dialog. Each spoken part has a corresponding caption with the
scripted text in it. The object is to identify the misstatmets by
one of the speakers. Each incorrect statement (ie the correct
choice in the sim.) links to a slide with an explination to why the
statement was incorrect. Each statement with no problem links to a
slide telling the user there isnt a problem with the choice. Id
like to link back to the scripted run through and have it pick up
where the user left off from either of the correct or incorrect
slides. Would that be possible? Ive read up a bit on the variables
etc.. I would imagine the link should reference the specific frame
number but was wondering if there is an easier way.
To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to link back to
a specific point in a slide as any navigation always takes you to
the beginning of a slide. Please bear in mind that Captivate does
not actually have frames like in Flash and the timeline is merely
that, a timeline measured in seconds.
If possible, try to break up your dialogue over as many
slides as you need (e.g. have 10 error section, therefor 10
slides). Thus you can now navigate "back" to the slide with the
relevant audio that you want to.
