I am using a background audio that runs across multiple pages. I also want to control it from the pages. I am using the Sound in Background properties in a Chapter that has four pages. This is the new feature in Lectora 17. I have used a global button (Chapter level) to control the BG Audio. However showing errors while publishing (seamless play). If I use the button in the pages then also it does not have any effect on the audio. And also the audio is looping. I am unable to view the audio in explorer and so unable to control the properties of the background audio, neither I can use action on it (like OnDonePlaying). Can anyone please help me if I am missing any settings?
Isn’t Background sound meant for music to be playing all the time and to be looping? I mean, wouldn’t it be easier for voiceover to use a separate normal audio object for each page so you can use all the usual features?
It seems to be a bug that it’s possible to target the background audio in actions. This is also new in Lectora 17. Although of course it would be nice to make the background audio controllable with the normal actions.
Here’s your sample using Darrels code to play / pause. It also prevents the audio from looping. The background audio gets a different id on each page that contains the page name. It would be easier to control if it always had the same id.
