508 Compliance Help
I'm working on a course for a government agency, and I'm encountering some issues as I try to make the course 508 compliant.
- The yellow highlight box that shows what section of the page is selected cannot be seen by some people - those who are color blind or have severe vision impairment. Is it possible to change the color of the highlight box?
- When the user's mouse is hovering over an object, such as a button, it is not possible to tab to select that object. The highlight doesn't appear on the object at all. Is there a reason for this? Is there a way to turn this feature off, or will I simply need to add a note into the course so that users know their mouse can affect the tab feature?
- Here's the biggest issue, and it's one I can't find an answer to no matter how hard I look on the forums: tab order. When the user presses the tab key to navigate through the screen content, it only goes in order from left to right and top to bottom. I added in some triggers so that the user could open layer content by pressing number keys rather than clicking the button on the screen, but apparently this can cause issues with the JAWS screen reader. I need to find an easy way for users to access content in a tabbed interaction that doesn't interfere with JAWS. Has Storyline 2 added any functionality for selecting tab key navigation order? All the information I've found on it is for the original Storyline. I'm hoping the new version makes things easier.
Thanks in advance for your help!
