Any updates on Accessibility and Section 508 Compliance?
Are there any updates on Accessibility and Section 508 Compliance for simple items produced with Articulate Presenter?
Recent testing of a typical Articulate Presenter product with the JAWS screen reader (typical approved US government application) resulted in a complete inability to perform basic navigation via Tab key or keyboard. An experienced JAWs user got stuck on the page multiple times and was unable to advance.
I had thought Articulate was going do something to make the published products more accessible (remove or label hidden buttons, provide labels for visible buttons, set up meaningful tabbing order, etc.). Is there an update available that addresses the issues of basic navigation with a screen reader?
I know that we could provide an alternate version of the course that is readable by a screen reader (HTML or PDF - providing that users can access the Attachments via a screen reader), but I am looking for an update on basic navigation with screen readers. Both Adobe Presenter and Adobe Captivate produced output that was accessible with JAWS, so I wondered if I was just missing something with Articulate Presenter.
This is not a new requirement for anyone doing work with the Federal government or large commercial organizations, so I am hoping that there is a checkbox or update that I am missing.
