Articulate Storyline: Custom Audio Controller Using Toggle Button

Articulate Storyline, an easy to use rapid eLearning authoring tool that comes with many in-built interactivities and is highly customizable. By default in Storyline the audio control button has a fixed position with no options available in the settings to change it. Due to this limitation, it was challenging for us to customize volume controls. To overcome this challenge, we created a “mute/unmute” custom toggle button as a part of requirement from one of our clients.

Let’s delve into our intervention of “mute/unmute” customization.Here are the steps:

The custom button is compatible with following platforms:

  1. Flash-based output (PC’s, Laptop) and
  2. HTML5 based output (Mobile, iPad, Tablet)

For Flash version, we have used an swf file in the Master slide to control the volume toggle feature. And for HTML5, we have used JavaScript in the Master slide to control the volume toggle.
