    Hi,

    I have an introduction page with the chapters listed on the left. When someone first sees this slide I want my intro voice-over to play. When it’s done playing they can then go to any of the chapters. When they are done with the chapter they will be sent back to this first page to select another chapter. How can I make it so that the voice-over only plays once and not each time they go back to that page?

    Thanks!

    You can either allow the student to choose to play it with a button so if they want to hear it again they can, or you use a variable on the page.
    On show> play ____> if VAR(narrative) is less than 1
    …and an action on the narrative…
    On Done playing> Add to VAR(narrative) 1

    I love variables. They make all things possible.

    I was going to recommend putting in a variable as well 🙂

    I would suggest replacing “On Done” with a sound timeline event cued to about 10 seconds into the narration. So even if the learners leaves the page before listening to 100% of the voiceover, they still don’t have to listen to it again on return.
