Accessibility - turning Notes on and off

Jul 25, 2018


I have a narrated course in Presenter 360 that needs to be made 508 compliant. If I use the Notes function in the player to display the narration, is it possible to have the user turn it on or off according to need?

You can't turn notes off at the layer level, however you can for slides individually.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Create duplicate slides with notes enabled. And link to them if someone enables notes. Of course this works fine for simple courses.
  • You could create a fake side panel (by extending the slide dimensions and put notes on the slide/layer that will show on the slides. If you want to use a menu, I'd have it set to be a drop down menu so the course isn't super wide.

I guess I should read the question. :)

You can fake the layers by creating a hyperlink to a duplicate slide that shows the notes content. You'd need to create a notes section.

Personally I'd do something like this with the default player.

  • Change the menu to drop down
  • Move the notes panel to the opposite side
  • Keep it persistent
  • With some adjustments to the player colors you can create an elegant looking player
