Hi Rachel and welcome to Heroes! 

We don't have any documentation about the settings you'd need to use in Jaws or another screen reader - but you can find the information on Storyline's section 508 compliance here and you'll also want to check that for the elements within Storyline that you'd like to be accessible with screen readers you've enabled the "Alt text" within the "Size and position" window.

When we are testing our course using JAWS it is reading out the text twice, once followed by the word 'graphic' at either the first or second read through.  There are no graphics behind the text box, its just pure text.

We cant work out why it would read it out as text graphic then just as text?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Rachel - I did a bit more digging on this one, and found an issue that has been reported to our QA team where the word "graphic" is added to the end of the text - I have added this thread to the QA report, although at this time I don't have any further information to share on a fix.

Hi Rachel,

I don't know a lot about Dragon's software, but I've seen in mentioned in a few other threads such as this one but I suspect they're using it more for recording speech to text, and then inserting that into  Storyline instead of trying to control elements of Storyline with Dragon.
