Articulate Replay is a free tool from Articulate to all Storyline license holders. Articulate Replay can be used to create simulations and screencasts, combine two videos and add subtitles to videos. You can import any video format (.wmv, .flv, .mov, .avi, .mpg, .mpeg, .3gp, .3gp2, .mkv, .webm) in Articulate Replay. However, it can be published only to .mp4. You can also record simulations along with the webcam.
Subtitles in courses are useful when you are not sure if learners can understand the accent in which the audio is being spoken. Subtitles help learners to understand the content easily. Let’s see how you can add subtitles to your course.
Just follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the New project in Articulate Replay.
Step 2: Click the video on Menu bar.
Step 3: The media panel dialogue box will appear and you need to select your video and click Open.
Step 4: Click the Lower Third on Menu bar.
Step 5: Lower Third properties will appear. This is main part of Lower Third. In the Properties dialogue box, you can have Title, subtitle, logo and Transition Type fields that need to be filled.
