    I am trying to integrate closed captions on my audio files. The problem is that the audio object controller size is set automatically by Lectora (300 by 114) and I can not figure out how to resize it. The position and size tab is locked on the size. I thought the little tutorial video on how to add closed captions said you could resize the viewer.

    You can resize the font size of the captions in the XML file, but you cannot resize the audio player at this time.

    Is this still the case, that you cannot change the size of the audio controller to support a larger volume of text?

    I need to do the same thing…

    Can’t we edit the javascript or CSS or something to resize the audio controller?

    This is exactly what I accomplished through a custom CSS on the player. To conserve real estate in the course, I widened the player, reduced the height and extended the length of the captions. I marked up the CSS file to help see where, what and how I customized the player. One thing to note is that in the design screen, you won’t see the customizations. To accommodate that, I created a shape at the top level of the course that matches the size and position of the player and captions so I could design around it.

    The sample is at the end of the forum post. I should probably share this one, but was holding out until I could tweak it a little more.
