Scrolling page menu and turn off the narration only.

cathy lane 7 years ago in By Screen / Interact updated by Alin Alexandru Matei 6 years ago 1

I have 2 questions ( I apologise if you have seen this twice as I was not sure weather I posted the question in the correct place before)

1.I want to create a scrolling table of contents for the picture book app I am developing . I know it is possible as it has been done in the book "Goodnight little sea otter"  which was produced by interactbooks. How do you do this?

2. I also want to know how to turn off the narration only. I can only find an option to turn off all the audio? Thankyou!!!

Hi Cathy,


Good Night, Little Sea Otter was created in IB2, and the feature has not yet been completed in IB3, but there are a few new features that make it easier to create your own custom menu on each page:


Tap-ShowGroup: If you create your thumbnails and menu background as graphic elements that are invisible on page load, you can give each of these elements a group number, and show all of them at the same time when the user taps a button for opening the menu.


Tap-HideGroup: You can hide all of the menu elements at the same time as well.
Multiple selection and copy/paste: IB3 has a copy/paste feature, so once you add the jump behaviors to the menu (and the button that opens the menu) on your first page, you'll be able to select all of those elements, and paste them onto the other pages, and the elements will retain their action sets.


This way you can create a custom menu that can look any way you'd like : )


To turn narration on or off, first make sure that when you are adding the narration files and you see a pop-up message that asks whether this audio will be used as narration, you select "narration." Then, you can use the ToggleAudio behavior to turn the narration on or off.


Great questions. Hope this helps!
