Chapter 5. Adding Captions > Creating Rollover Captions

Creating Rollover Captions

Chapter 4, “The Captivate Timeline and Objects,” explained how to create a rollover with an image. You can do the same thing with captions.

Similar to the rollover image, a rollover caption is composed of two elements: a hot spot and a caption. When the mouse rolls over the hot spot, the caption appears on the screen. This is especially useful for drawing the viewer's attention to important areas of the screen or to provide an immediate response to a question. For example, you could assign a series of hot spots to the icons in the Captivate Start page; when the user rolls over the “Record new movie” icon, a caption appears identifying the icon and how to use it.
