Is there a way to make an image a custom play button an audio clip? Stefanie Sanders
Julie, I've never done it, so I'd have to play with it and see. In the meantime, I'll share your question with the Instructional Designers group; someone clever person there probably knows the answer right off the bat!
Oh, and in the meantime, enjoy reading this somewhat related thread: Unfortunate Audio Icon Needs Replacing
We attempted this with our Chinese 4 course. We created play buttons that linked to an audio file. Turns out, an image can't be linked to an audio file to automatically play. Instead, it will present a download option of the audio file. I had to manually remove every play button and every html code that launched the download.
I'm wondering if a master coder can't find a solution for this. We were in emergency mode when we "fixed" ours. But a Canvas tech did inform me about not being able to link images to an audio file.
Who is up for the challenge?
OK, Julie, the only way I could think of to accomplish this was by hosting the audio file(s) on an external server. I tested this in a Canvas page, and it works just fine. If you have the capability to upload the files to a server, once you have harvested the web link to the file from the server, you can use the Link to URL feature in the RCE to create a clickable image (and if I were designing it, I'd use the target="_blank" attribute, or just CTRL-K the link, to force the audio to open in a new tab or window).
