Hi Jeff We have testet this in Saba LMS. If we use page tracking in Storyline, we always publish with Complete/Incomplete as this is the status we want back on the attempt in the LMS. If we accidently publish with Pass/Fail, we get a pass/fail status on the attempt and a score (typically zero). If you have a quiz in your course and set a passrate, I would publish with Pass/Fail. Overall the different settings in the Publish section depens on what status you want the course to report back to the LMS on the attempt, which determines how the course is completed or passed in the LMS. If you use Saba LMS be aware that you need to download new Scormfunctions.js files if you publish with Scorm 1.2 in order to get your LMS communication correct: http://www.articulate.com/support/storyline-2/s...

Hi Scott...this is another Scott with similar questions. I recently worked on a project where the main focus was accessibility.

If you had ten objects on the screen do they all need to be announced by a screen reader (especially if you are using a lot of audio). One example would be if you are using a virtual coach, such as Atsumi, do you really need to add alt text every time she appears on the screen? Or can you add the alt text to her first appearance to let the user k... Expand
