During every Captivate beginner class, time is spent on the second day teaching everyone how to use Captivate's Text-to-Speech feature to convert slide notes into speech.
Recently, one of the students asked an excellent question: "Is there an easy way to change my mind? I'd love it if there was a pain-free way to quickly change the agent from Kate, to Paul and then maybe back to Kate."
You can switch between one agent to another. The solution, while easy, isn't obvious. Here's how:
First, go through your project and convert the slide notes to speech. If you're not sure how, review this article.
After you've committed to an agent, changing your mind is just as easy as selecting the original agent. Choose Audio > Speech Management to open the Speech Management dialog box.
In the image below, notice that different agents have been used between the two slides.
Select all of the notes for a slide and then, from the Speech Agent drop-down menu, select an agent. In the image below, all three notes are selected for Slide 1 and that Paul is being selected from the Speech Agent drop-down menu. (Note: you can only select the notes for more than one slide at a time; you'll need to repeat the process for each slide.)
The final step is to simply click the Generate Audio button and you're all set.
