ClosedCaptionsOn & ClosedCaptionsOff, Version 3

The Adobe Captivate widget updates continue. Here are the latest versions of ClosedCaptionsOn and ClosedCaptionsOff, a pair of widgets for turning closed captions on and off at any point in a slide’s timeline. Use ClosedCaptionsOn at the beginning of the first slide of any project to ensure that your closed captioning efforts don’t go unnoticed. Use ClosedCaptionsOff to reclaim space at the bottom of your slide during narration-less portions of your demonstrations and simulations.
