I couldn’t resisted the opportunity to highlight the growing number of lowercase aTtachments to various terms in an attempt to describe efficiently the evergrowing array of associations.
We’ve created links to this weeks Adobe eLearning eSeminars at the locations below. The sessions were well attended and each lasted about an hour. The first has a more pragmatic emphasis with a focus on creating and delivering mLearning solutions using Adobe Captivate and the eLearning Suite. The second is a deeper dive into the issues surrounding mLearning. Is it time to explore this channel? Are we hitting a new wave? Is it all still just hype? Links are below;

Adobe Captivate 4 Text-to-Speech feature gives a Dictionary Editor tool to add or change the pronunciation for a word. This tool is available at <Adobe Captivate Installation Dir>\VT\<agent>\M16\bin\UserDicEng.exe. The default version of this tool is not unlocked. So when a word is added/changed and its pronunciation is tested, it announces that it is a trial license. This post explains how to fix this.
Follow the steps below to correct this problem in your installation –
1. Open the Windows Explorer and browser to the directory where Adobe Captivate is installed. By default it is ‘C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Captivate 4′.
2. If the Text-to-Speech engine is installed, then there will be a ‘VT’ directory in this directory. This directory will have directories for ‘Kate’ and ‘Paul’ agents.
3. Go to directory ‘VT/Kate/M16/bin’ directory.
4. Rename the ‘UserDicEng.exe’ as ‘UserDicEng_backup.exe’.
5. Download the new UserDicEng.exe file from here and put it in this directory.
6. Repeat the same steps for ‘Paul’ agent.
Now, you should not hear the trial license message when you add/change the pronunciation of any word.
Quick Tip – We have seen that ‘Create’ is not pronounced properly by the speech engine. So, you can fix this by specifying the target as ‘cree ate’ for this source word ‘create’.
