Generating speech using Power Point Notes

Dear Forum,

Do any of you have tips to solve the following problem.

With Captivate 2019, creating a project with a power point presentation.

Using Power Point Notes to generate speech.

Problem:

Some words require specification for correct pronounciation. Doing this by adding to Neospeech dictionary.

Previously, the new pronounciations did have effect, now they dont. It is like Captivate is ignoring if you update e.g. the James voice to pronounce words correctly.

Any ideas ?

Captivate 2017 et 2019 freeze lorsque j’ouvre un fichier PowerPoint

Bonjour,

Je suis sous environnement Mac OSX (10.13.6) et dois reprendre un projet initialement réalisé sous PowerPoint (v.16.20). Lorsque je crée un nouveau fichier “à partir de PowerPoint” et que j’ouvre ce projet sous Captivate 2017 ou Captivate 2019, voici ce qu’il se passe :

01. Le fichier PowerPoint s’ouvre dans PowerPoint.
02. Captivate importe le fichier et une barre de défilement indique la progression de cette importation.
03. Tout au long de cette importation, une fenêtre ne cesse d’apparaître à intervalles réguliers m’informant que “Pour utiliser les outils de ligne de commande Java, je dois installer un JDK” et que je dois cliquer sur OK pour me connecter au site internet proposant le téléchargement du paquet de développement Java (JDK).
04. Si je ne fais pas ce téléchargement et cette installation, une seconde fenêtre “Convertir les présentations Microsoft PowerPoint” apparaît. Et là, que que je fasse, l’application Captivate est bloquée. Je ne peux que la quitter.
05. SI je télécharge et installe le paquet de développement (JDK) et que je redémarre mon ordinateur et que je recommence la procédure : rien ne change. Les mêmes fenêtres apparaissent et Captivate est toujours bloqué.

À titre d’information, si j’utilise le logiciel Keynote pour ouvrir et transformer ce même fichier PowerPoint, tout se fait normalement et je n’ai strictement aucun souci.

Pouvez-vous m’aider ?

How can we use an SRT file to import closed captions?

The ability to use srt files for closed captions would save so much time.  Does the 2019 version have this ability?

Also, is there a program like Grammarly that could be used to quickly edit closed captions so that capitalizations and grammar are correct.

I am stuck in my production as CC is needed for optimal compliance.

Thanks,

J

Can you upload a video to YouTube with the TOC feature using Captivate?

We’d like to start creating our videos and include TOC. I see that this can definitely be done in Captivate, but what I can’t seem to find out is if once you’ve created a project using Captivate, can you upload the output file to YouTube and still have the TOC show and work?

None complete issue when viewing all content via Scorm system (completion criteria – Slide views)

Hi all,

I desperately need some help here. I am fairly new to this which does not help!

I have a course I have created which is navigated through custom buttons made up of next slide and previous slide buttons. I have no TOC and no playbar and no Q&A’s. The user can move forwards and backwards with no branching.  I have set the completion criteria for slide views as so..

When I ran it through scorm cloud, I exited the module half way through to see if it registered a complete or not (which it didn’t) and it was only when I viewed the last slide and closed the module down did it register a complete action (see below).

When I am passing this on to the client though they are reporting the following:

“The module is registering being opened but isn’t passing SCORM completion data back to the Academy. (SCORM is the protocol that enables modules to communicate with learning management systems).”

Essentially its being reported opened but nothing else it looks like?

they passed this on to me as well:

What am I missing here? What is it that captivate isn’t doing in order for this to happen? As I reading it right that scorm cloud essentially says its working or am I missing something here too?

Filmstrip and Master slide view

Hello,

I just upgraded to captivate 2019 from captivate 9. In captivate 9 I was able to have film strip, master slide and object state all on the left hand side of my project. And also be able to drag each one along with my timeline. So far in 2019 I have not figured out how to do this. Every time I click on master side and film strip, they just switch places, so its either one or the other and wont let me add both at the same time.

Does anyone know how I can set this up like I had with captivate 9? And also why I can’t drag and move my timeline?

Thanks so much,

Zach

Captivate Video Capabilities

Is Captivate able to produce a slide where video is playing in the foreground and slide information is playing behind or to the side of the video?

What we are thinking is to green screen a speaker talking in the video with information coming on and off the screen in the background.

Thank you for your guidance.

Getting Rid of Extra Slides Created by Adding Audio

Hi!

Does anyone know how to remove an extra slide that was attached to my original slide after adding an audio? When I attempted to add audio to my slides, and I said “Yes” to having my audio extend to match my slides, it added an extra duplicate slide that I can’t get rid of when I preview it. I can’t even click past this extra slide or do anything with it. Please help!

Thanks,

Pascal Wright
