Add Captions (Video) - Options Grayed Out

kdahlstrom Community Member Posts: 10 ☆ Roadie ☆


Brand new to Lectora and it's much more sophisticated than Captivate! I'm playing around with closed captions. I've uploaded a video and .srt file. However, in the section to upload the .srt file, these options—Display Caption Box, Color, and Opacity—are grayed out.

1 - Does this mean I can should be able to change the color and opacity of the CC box? The articles I've come across seem to imply that it's not easy. I need to modify the .srt file but when I've tried, the changes aren't reflected.

2 - Do those options apply to mp4 or only mp3?

    Hi kdahlstrom!

    This option is available when adding captioning to an audio file, see image below displaying the differences.

    It is not available when adding a cc file to a video.
