508 Help: How to resume tab order after open/close lightbox

Sep 25, 2018

Hi. I'm building an accessible course and have a slide with a custom tab order set to tab through a list of items. When clicked, each item opens a separate lightbox. 

When exiting the lightbox slide, I would like the tab order to resume to highlight the next item in the list, but the tab order re-starts from the top of the custom tab order list. Is there any action or script that would set the next focus on the next item in the list?

Hi there, Deb.  Thanks for the details!  I'm not sure what version of Storyline you're using -- I didn't see a 360 subscription or trial for you, so I tested in Storyline 2.

I noticed that after closing a lightbox slide, the next tab was slightly out of order, but the rest of my custom tab order was respected.  You can check out my sample here to see what I mean.  The tab order follows the rectangles, top to bottom, and then the circles top to bottom.

When I activate the first lightbox and close it, the tab jumps to the first circle and then resumes with the rectangles.  It's still a bit of a minor glitch.  Can you share a link to your output or even your .story file here so I can see what's happening in your course?

Also, let me know if you're using a newer version of Storyline, which will likely default to HTML5 output when you publish.
