How can I add custom text to different numeric values in a numeric slider?

    I would like to add a numeric slider to my page and have custom text in a label below the slider that changes with each numeric choice.  The text will be between 1 and 2 senteces long.

    The slider would have a min=0, max=4. 


    0="I never feel fatigued"

    1="I rarely feel fatigued after a full night's sleep"

    2="I often feel fatigued during the day but am still able to keep up with most activities of daily living"

    3="I feel fatigued constantly but it does not prevent me from working.

    4="I am only able to stay awake for 3 hours at a time. I no longer work outside the home as a result of my severe fatigue"


    Since I will have 5 questions along the same lines it will not fit on the screen to have each of the five sliders along with their complete descriptions, so I want to have the description for the chosen number to show up under the slider to save space.

    Thank you! This would be almost perfect for my needs - do you know if there is a way to change the look of the slider so that it has each one of the numbers (0,1,2,3,4) labeled on the slider?

    It appears there's no easy way to accomplish that. Hopefully one of our colleagues can devise a workaround.
