Hi

 

I just started the course

 

While I'm working the lessons

the ribbon area is hidden with text

so I can't see what' being done under text

I can hear the lesson

Is there a way to remove the text so I can see the ribbon and what's being done?

 

Thanks

 

JoeTom

Dear Joe

 

You can switch off the interactive transcript window in the same way that you close any other window - by clicking the red cross button in the top right corner.  Once you have done this the transcript window remains off until you switch it on again (provided you are logged in).

 

You can also switch off the transcript by clicking Transcript -> Off on the top menu bar.  Here's a screen grab that illustrates this:

Let me know if this information did not enable you to solve the problem.

I understand now, thanks to this post (thank you), how to remove the transcript windows, but I still can't figure out how to move or get rid of the grey box which also contains the transcript. It covers the area at the bottom of the worksheet and covers the area being discussed at times. I'm new at this and I didn't see this question already, so I hope I am not asking a question that is already answered. Thanks.

Hi Kiki

 

The transcript at the bottom of the window is a Caption.  Much the same as a a movie subtitle.

Just click the drop-down arrow next to Captions (you can see this in the screen grab above to the left of Transcript) at the top of the video window and select OFF to switch them off.
