508 Compliance Questions
Jul 30, 2012
The 508 compliance features in Storyline are a vast improvement from Presenter. However, there are still some major sticking points that would prevent me from being able to use this software to produce 508 compliance material.
- Keyboard Controls: Is there a way to indicate which keys we'd like to use? For example, it would be great if the forward and back arrows keys corresponded to the Back/Next buttons.
- Skip Navigation: The Storyline VPAT states that the author has full control over the navigation, including allowing the screen reader to skip the navigation tab. Currently, when I publish, the screen reader reads the navigation menu on every screen. How do I provide a skip option to my users?
- Next Button: If the screen reader is in the process of reading a screen and the user hits the Next button, the screen reader stops reading. To a blind person, this means there is no more content on the page. Is there anything we can do about this?
- Forms: Is there a way to associate a label with an input field? Specifically, when a user is prompted to enter a name prior to printing quiz results. Can we add alt text to the Name input field?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
