I have slides where the audio needs to be paused until the user clicks buttons.
I am having an issue where the button pauses on the timeline don’t really pause the audio where they should. The further along in the timeline, the more the audio pauses are off. The first few audio pauses are spot-on, but the further along you go in the audio, the worse the delayed pause effect is. For example, if I want the the first few pauses at 0:03, 0:05, and 0:09, those pauses will work fairly well, and will pause at around 0:03, 0:05, and 0:09. However, if I want the audio to pause at 0:30, I have to set the pause at 0:28… two whole seconds earlier. The effect is cumulative, so by the time I get to 1:35 in the audio, the pauses have to be adjusted by a lot. How do you solve this issue, other than moving the button pauses to weird areas, to compensate?
I also tried using a Click Box to get the same effect; that worked, and the audio paused at the correct time, but there was a one-second delay before the audio started back up again, which is not a good User Experience.
