I am attempting to add closed captions to a slide with an added YouTube video. It would not allow me to add captions to this type of video, so I included a slide-length audio clip of silence, which then allowed me to add closed captions.
The closed captions play through perfectly unless the user clicks my customized play/pause button ( set with advanced actions to pause/continue the slide). If the user pauses the slide, the closed captions will not continue when you press play. Pressing play will continue the slide/video, but the closed captions will no longer change text.
Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this error?
When I preview a closed caption project, if I click the little x in the right corner of the cc text everything disappears including the little x. How do I re open cc since there is no longer a button to do so?
