Kera Step-by-Step Product Walkthroughs have Arrived!

Subtitles and Captioning.

Many of you wanted subtitles and captioning for your Kera tutorials…. it has arrived! You can now build step-based, subtitled tutorials without audio.

To see an example: go to the Kera homepage and find the word “maintain” and click on it. The secret step-by-step tutorial will start playing. Shortcut to homepage.

Our goal was to make it easier and faster for you to build walkthroughs. Now it can literally take 5 minutes to build and deploy a walkthrough. No audio required. Much better than making a video, huh?

How to build a step by step walkthrough?

Use the “subtitle” attribute and don’t specify the time. This is the code for our secret hidden tutorial.

{
  "events": [
    { "type": "move", "path": "body", "subtitle": "Hey buddy! Welcome to our \"Awesome Interactive\" Tour. Click on the button to the right to continue." },
    { "type": "move", "path": ".social_facebook", "subtitle": "We have a Facebook page! Yay!" },
    { "type": "move", "path": ".social_twitter", "subtitle": "And Twitter Bird! すばらしい!" },
    { "type": "eval_javascript", "eval": " $('.carousel_nav.carousel_next.btn').attr('style', function(i, style){ return style.replace(/display[^;]+;?/g, ''); });", "subtitle": "See what we can do." },  
    { "type": "click_required", "path": ".carousel_nav.carousel_next.btn", "subtitle": "Try clicking it." },
    { "type": "click_one_required", "path": ".demo_form fieldset input[name='radio']", "subtitle": "What do you want?" },
    { "type": "click_required", "path": "a:contains(Pricing)", "subtitle": "Now check out our sweet pricing. Ok?" },
    { "type": "click_required", "path": "#pro-plan", "subtitle": "We want you to click this." },
    { "type": "pause", "subtitle": "That's all. See you soon!" }   
  ]
}
