MediaPlayer12.0onWin7Pro - Disable "slow down playback" option for public exams: Is there a GP setting? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi We are a small school shortly to run public examinations; our Foreign languages exams have a listening-to-speech exercise and we would like to play the examination CDs using computers; we need to prevent students in the exam using the shift/control/S option to slow down playback speed (which might make the test easier). Is there any way of turning off this facility (perhaps via Group Policy?) Thanks for any help.

  • Unfortunately no. The best thing you can do is, have one computer in use managed by an instructor, connected to a speaker.

  • Hi,

    As Andre mentioned, I'm afraid there is no Group Policy to disable the option.

    In addition, we may try to use software distribution to make the media player run as admin, and test if the standard users could control it.
