Shared by Maya • March 05, 2024

Hi Friend,

Now, it’s easier than ever before to turn your text guides into audio guides, without the need to record each one separately and upload the file manually.

With AI, you can now combine Text-To-Speech and autoplay to create a more passive viewing experience and improve accessibility.

How can you use this feature?

1. Create an autoplay presentation that you can use during a conference or a tradeshow.

2. Make your demo more accessible for vision-impaired viewers.

FYI: The audio won’t be automatically updated when your guide text is modified. So, to update the generated audio, you need to generate a new file and delete the old one.

What are the use cases?

1. Rebuild the structure of any narrative with multiple guides.

2. Update the text within multiple guides.

3. Re-assign guides to different screens than the one it was originally attached to.

Shared by Maya • January 23, 2024

Now, you can highlight a particular area on the screen and use a Custom Element. All to give you more flexibility when it comes to linking screens or incorporating guides.

You’ll be able to see the elements again once you change the display.
