I'm not sure if it's necessarily "Best practice", but Captivate normally likes to have the audio narration at the slide level.
However, if you have a few slides where it doesn't make sense to do this, note that you can record a longer audio clip (maybe on a blank slide) then assign the audio to the slide where it should begin. If the clip is longer than the slide, Captivate will offer a dialog allowing you to choose how the clip will be split. You would then choose the option where it simply spills into subsequent slides.
Thanks for the quick reply Rick.
Haivng the audio at the slide level makes total sense to me. I think I'm just putting too much onto each slide and I'm still trying to figure out the best approach in using Captivate. Looks like I'm going to have a long weekend sitting in front of a microphone...
I have had the same question as you Sean. Another option is to have some slides with no audio. So on slide x you could say, 'Next we're going to populate the widget field," then leave off any audio on the 2 or 3 slides that demonstrate that feature.
I find I have to write the whole darn script out word-for-freekin'-word too. It takes a long time, but the result is good quality.
