Hi - have looked for this info but failed to find anything so thought I would ask here.

I have several page types onto each of which I have added an MP3 file as a Narration (from the Optional Property menu). On three of the page types (Tabbed Navigator, Hotspot Image and Accordion Navigator) I wondered if it was possible to set the page to move through the various Tabs, Accordion pages, or Hotspots at various set points in the audio? I had imagined this was what Synch Points were designed for, but I have no idea how to get them to work. Is this possible - and if so, how do I achieve it?
Many thanks
Simon

Hi Simon,

Sorry it has taken so long to reply to you.

Unfortunately, those pages are not designed to have that functionality although you can emulate it somewhat... If you split your mp3 files into sections then you can place each in order on separate pages. Then you can set the "Auto-play narration" and "Navigate on narration" settings. The audio will play automatically and when finished the LO will move to the next page.

Of course some of the pages, namely Audio Slideshow, Synched Video, Transcript Reader which could possibly fit your requirements, depending on what information it is that you wish to present.

Regards,

John
