What style of navigation will you use?

Would anything prevent someone choosing the last scene before your initial narration had ended?

Did you want the narration to play over the top of the background music?

So if the initial narration was still playing when someone chose to view the last scene what would you wish to happen regarding the sound?

Wait to finish or maybe stop and start the last narrator

I don't think there's a way to achieve what you describe via the PTP GUI.

Playing a narration over the top of background sound isn't likely to work too well in my opinion, since there's no way via the GUI to reduce the volume of the background sound automatically (as opposed to stopping it) when a foreground sound is played.

I feel you might be better off just offering an optional narration via pano-specific Simple buttons on relevant scenes.

So 2 sounds in continue ? Narrator and also background sound ?
Panotour is only able to serve a single sound to the whole tour for the moment.
A narrator sound can be added into a scene, with a sound spot for instance with 360° sound range to remove the directional sound option, but the sound will be killed when changing panorama.

Also on mobile devices as iPhone and iPad only one sound can be played at a given time, never 2 sounds.

No way to not kill the narrator when change camera?
I am able to play 2 sounds at same time, I have livepano and a video spot on same room playing with together!
If i am able to just keep playing narrator when change the room will be much helpfull like a background sound...

What Benji sought to communicate is that there's no way to play two sounds that play across scenes at the same time.
