You must have noticed movies in which closed captions (sub titles) of the dialogues are shown of the same language as the movie. The idea of closed captions was mainly introduced for the deaf or people with hearing deficiency, but it has been very useful even for the non-native speakers of the language.Movies now-a-days show closed captions, so that people all over the world can watch it even if they do not know the language.
E-learning developers also recommend having closed captions for courses, keeping in mind the types of learning styles.This feature is mostly preferred by visual learners or by learners who tend to avoid listening to the audio and read the content by themselves.
Articulate Storyline provides a Notes Pane, where you can put all the transcribed text.Today, in this blog; let us see how to add the notes pane to the player.
Click the Notes tab which is beside the Timeline and States tab.
Copy the transcribed text and paste it in the notes pane.
Now, in the Insert tab, click the Edit Player Properties button.
In the Player Tabs, click the checkbox of Notes to enable it in the player. You can change the placement of the notes pane in the player using the arrow buttons given below the tabs.
Click OK after enabling the notes pane and preview or publish the course to check the functionality.
That’s it! This is how we add a notes pane to the in-built player of Articulate Storyline.
This Notes Pane can be used only if you use the built-in interface of Storyline for the eLearning course.In case ofa customized interface, there are two different methods to display the closed caption.We will look at those methods, in my next blogs.
