Regarding Changing Speed of Words in IVW
« on: March 03, 2018, 11:10:24 AM »
I've been testing a new feature in IVW to see the difference of speed of the text words appearing  I can't seem to make the speed change.  I am placing a link to a Jing video of what happens.  Anyone who has a suggestion of what I am doing wrong, I thank you in advance.

It's because your slide is 3 seconds long due to the audio duration. If the words moved onto the slide any slower they wouldn't complete by the time the slide is finished playing. To slow it down you can either make the audio for the slide longer or you can manually set the slide duration using the "D:" drop down on the upper-left of the slide. Extend the duration to, say, 10 seconds and you'll see a difference.

I tried changing the timing to ten seconds.  I can get the words to go slower, but not the voice.  I tried the special effects slower voice but couldn't make it sync.  I'm trying to find a way to easily sync voice and text.

This is an edited note of my current best attempt so I don't forget what I did.  If someone knows a better solution, please let me know. 

1.  I recorded a short phrase slowly, speaking in equal increments.
2.  I checked the clock icon to see when it ended and set the end text animation time at that.
3.  I matched those seconds/time in the D dropdown.  Updated slide.
4.  I tested a few times using the Edit Slide Text screen to see if slowly, very slow, super slow, or ultra slow (of the animation) matched the voice speed the best.
Doing 1-4 brought the best results so far, not perfect, but best.  There may be a better way.

5.  I do see a very slow option in the FX voice, but so far have not been able to get it to work as well in a slide as 1-4 above.

The only way to get a perfect text / audio sync is to record the audio yourself with your microphone. The automatic text-to-speech isn't going to be perfectly sync'd.
