Unable to import WAV files

Whenever trying to import wav audio files we get the error message that the file may be corrupted.  I was able to successfully import older .wav files that were of the type pcm.wav.  But anything with the extension .wav without the .pcm gives us the following error: “Unable to import the audio file. Ensure that the file type is either MP3 or WAV.  Also ensure that the file is not damaged.

Is there a way that we can convert WAV to pcm.wav so we can upload our audio files?

Issue with audio when uploading Captivate to SuccessFactors

Hi All, I have created an animated slide with a voice over.  The image appears and I have recorded a voice over which is attached to the image.  It’s a diagram and the images build to make the final diagram.  When we have uploaded this to our test environment in SuccessFactors the audio is out of sync, when we them upload it to our live environment their is no sound.  Just wanted to check that I have created the slide in the correct way and if anyone else has experienced issues with audio when using SuccessFactors.  Thanks.

Drag & Drop Customized Audio Clips

Is it possible to set the Drag & Drop actions to play a different audio clip for each drop target on a successful match ? I am looking to see if I can play a different audio clip for each successful attempt of my 10 D&D animal items in the interactive lesson that I am trying to create. I want the sounds of the individual animals to play, not the same sound over and over again. I am new to Adobe Captivate. I appreciate any helpful replies. Thank you in advance.

(re)Use Shared Actions – Lesson 2 (crash course)

Preparation

In the first lesson you started from an existing project, which had the objects for the Slide show created AND shared actions in the Library. Focus of the lesson was on the workflow to attach those shared actions to a slide event (On Enter) and to buttons (Success event). Lesson ended with the proposal to create a personal project with two slides. First slide is a title slide with only a Start button (Go to Next slide). Second slide will have two multistate objects. Number of states is not important, needs to be the same for both objects (you can have identical states if wished).  Add two navigation buttons (Back and Forward) and a button to get back to the firt slide.

For this video lesson you need:

  • The original project, which I provided in Lesson 1. You can download it again here:
    SlideShow
  • Your project. If you are really lazy, you download this project, which is used in the video. Do not reuse the SVGs, they are created from a licensed Adobe Stock file.

Test output

When you have finished, test it with F11, Preview HTML in Output. Preferable in several browsers. If you used my project, the output would look like this:

NEW Voices for text-to-speech_Captivate 2017

I am creating an eLearning with a narration voice. Unfortunately, the default and free voices you have for Captivate 2017 
(David, Zira, Bridget, Chloe, James, Julie, Paul, etc) are not good enough for my audience.

Could you let me know where I can purchase voices and install them? The text-to-speech software is an alternative but I believe it’ll better to embed the voice in Captivate and manage it from there.

How to add another Speech agent

If anyone knows how to add a speech agent, please let me know.

Hello. I am Miho.
I work in Japan as an instructional designer.
The Japanese version of Adobe Captivate 2019 includes an English speech agent. I want to add agents in other languages. How do I operate them?

I  am glad if you teach me. Thank you.

Split Audio Files Across Many Slides in Adobe Captivate

I ran into this recently when a client sent over some audio narration files to be imported into an eLearning course I was developing for them. They send the audio as one single long file. Your instinct might be to either ask them to resend them separated out or edit them yourself in an application like Adobe Audition.
