Quick Tip: Adobe Captivate Text to Speech files and Trial Downloads


Yesterday I had to reinstall Adobe Captivate 5, because I “accidently” edited a crucial Adobe Captivate system file without keeping a backup of the original (yeah I know – not to smart).

I usually purchase my copies of Adobe software from the Adobe Store and select “Download” as the delivery method. I had kept the original Adobe Captivate 5 install files, but I did not keep the Text to Speech packages. This turned out to be problem since the Text to Speech download links now are for Adobe Captivate 5.5 only and doesn’t work with Adobe Captivate 5.

There is however a way to get hold of these “older” files if you know the correct links to the download packages.

Go to www.adobe.com and navigate to the Adobe Captivate product page. Click the Try button and log in to your account. When you get to the Trial download page you then you copy / paste one of the links from the list below into your browser to download the files that you need.

That’s it ;o)

Here are the files that I find relevant. I included the links for the trial downloads for Adobe Captivate 5 and Adobe Captivate 4 in case anyone needs those. Remember that these files are fully functional versions but they will only work for a 30-day trial period.
