508 Compliance Questions
Sep 09, 2015
We are trying to get our courses revised for 508 compliance. We are running into a few inconsistencies and would like further explanation and help.
1. Just before going to the PREV and NEXT button (using standard Storyline bottom right buttons), there is an extra tab. (A) When JAWS reader is not on, it seems like an extra tab is needed for no reason. (B) When JAWS reader is on, it says "Skip navigation, hit ENTER to return to the slide." I believe this is standard operation per this post http://www.articulate.com/support/storyline-2/skip-player-navigation-when-tabbing-through-elements-with-a-screen-reader?_ga=1.161887999.299404195.1441816963 Correct?
2. We have our menu in the topbar right so it is not always seen. The tabbing seems to not go to the topbar right links consistently. Is this a known issue? Anyone know how to make it go there consistently before or after the PREV/NEXT buttons?
3. If I hit ENTER or SPACEBAR when JAWS says "skip navigation ...", it seems to turn OFF going to the menu altogether until menu is triggered by clicking on it again. Is there another way for the learner to invoke "going to the menu" and "not going to the menu" when using keyboard tabbing/screen reader?
