Beg, Borrow or Google...!!!

I always thought it would be impossible to insert Articulate Engage output to Adobe Captivate. Someone here proved me wrong.

I always thought we could not reduce the speed of narration we get from Captivate 4.0’s Neo Text to Speech. This Adobe blog - - proved me wrong and taught me that you could actually modify not just the speed, but its pitch, voice, and what not!!!

The other day, I received a letter from an anonymous Xmas friend in my office and it was written in Hindi. As I was investigating for people who knew Hindi, my colleague Googled the text and there you go – that’s a common SMS.

Every time I think something is not possible, some one or the other proves me wrong. Trust me; you can Google for almost anything under the universe. And it applies to Instructional Designers more than anyone else. So the next time you have a query, I would say – Ask your colleague first and if he/she doesn’t have the answer, just Google it. In fact, I would recommend that even if your colleague comes to your rescue, just Google the topic and who knows, you might end up with a better option.
