Syntax

Parameters

boolean A boolean value of true or false.

Remarks

The soundcapture attribute supports recording of long form verbal responses, such as an answer to an interview question. When the soundcapture attribute is set to true, audio recording starts at the beginning of the expt, block, or trial and records until end. Recordings are saved to wav files in a subfolder called "soundcaptures. When used with Inquisit Web, the maxixum recording time is 5 minutes.

Examples

The following trial takes a picture at the beginning:

<trial q1>
/ stimulustimes = [1=target1, target2, target3]
/ soundcapture = true
/ validresposne = (noresponse, lbuttondown)
/ timeout = 1000
/ inputdevice = mousekey
</trial>
